The illustration is an impression of a proposed temporary ferry planned to carry people travelling by foot or by cycle over the Thames while waiting for Hammersmith Bridge to be repaired.
Uber Boats (by Thames Clippers) is proposing to start the service by the end of summer this year to take passengers between piers near Queen Caroline Street in Hammersmith and the Hammersmith Bridge approach in Barnes. The service will run services daily 06:00-22:00 and have a capacity to take over 1100 passengers across the river in both directions at peak times.
Adult fares are expected to mirror buses at £1.55 for Pay as you go, with a Hopper option between bus and ferry and the same concessions, including free travel for children and the Freedom Pass.
