The Swedish company Seabubbles began testing a new capsule-shaped water taxi in Paris.
This week on the Seine will be held test races on white electric boats with oval-shaped hydrofoils that look like tiny spaceships.
The advantages of its use are that it works silently, does not pollute the atmosphere and the environment, and does not cause the formation of waves during movement.
The tested Seabubble can accommodate four passengers. If local authorities approve them use, then a water taxi can be ordered through regular applications for calling a taxi, renting a bicycle or renting other vehicles.
In addition to the capital of France, the company plans to launch commercial water taxi options in other cities from next year.
Paris actively introduces into infrastructureinnovative solutions that make the life of citizens more comfortable. For example, in the suburbs of Villeneuve-le-Roi, they are testing a radar system that can accurately detect loud vehicles and set fines for them.
