The Lisbon Tourism Association (ATL) will present by the end of March a study for the use of 13 berths on both banks of the River Tagus by river taxis.

The protocol for the study and development of the Tagus Wharf Network was signed between the Lisbon City Hall (CML) and ATL, which will present the CML with a proposal for the implementation of the Tagus Wharf Network project, which includes a business plan and a financing and scheduling proposal.
The document foresees the installation, rehabilitation, adaptation and progressive use of 13 points and berthing quays to encourage “the use of the river as a means of public or private transport, tourism and leisure, collective or individual”.
The points and quays should have the capacity to “berth different types of boats and business models of all interested operators, from taxi boats, traditional boats, tours to other innovative solutions”, clarified the Lisbon City Hall.

The central station of the Tagus Wharf Network will be in the South and Southeast Station, in the Lisbon Wharf, whose project was presented at the end of November.
Four main wharves are planned: in Belém, Parque das Nações, Montijo and Cacilhas.
A special project is also planned for the Matinha Quay and seven complementary quays at the Gas Quay, Alcântara, Ginjal, Trafaria, Porto Brandão, Seixal and Barreiro, the municipality added.
The proposal of this initiative came from the social democrat councillor Teresa Leal Coelho.
