Whether it's a short cruise down the river or a full scale bar crawl, Water Taxi Milwaukee will provide Milwaukeeans with a full gambit of transport services starting this Saturday, May 19.

They announced they will have boats on the water this weekend on their Facebook page.

A short trip to their next stop on the river costs $5 per person, a long trip to wherever the passenger wants to go is $10 and and full scale pub crawl costs $20. 

The taxi will make stops at riverfront bars, public docks and apartments along the water. 

Highlighted stops include Milwaukee Ale House, The Harp Irish Pub, Ale Asylum and Twisted Fisherman. 

Each taxi has a maximum capacity of 6, per Coast Guard rules, but a custom 19 passenger taxi is currently in the works. 

The service is on demand, so customers can text 414-563-7025 with their location and the taxi will respond with availability. 

Tickets can be purchased online one a reservation has been made or they can be purchased directly on the boat. Cash and card is accepted.
