Along came the bus

At our ferry pier in Hoboken, these are taken on the other side of the river in Kruibeke- you have the choice between the ferry and the waterbus. The ferry takes you to the other side of the river for free. The waterbus takes you to the centrum of Antwerp. The waterbus is something new and is a succes. These people here were all waiting for the bus.

And here she comes from a village down the river.

Everybody on board and ...

away we are to the centre of Antwerp, or a bit more up the river.

Nice thing is they service the bus untill quite late in the evening, so you can come back when it is dark.

It's unusal and very generous that a ferry is for free. In Germany don't exist any free ferry-service. #5 is great !

I love that idea and that is a use of taxes I could support . Great series and a side question are they free for tourists too?

Looks like Andi beat me to the question. At least your taxes are being spent on something worthwhile. Love #5, the leading lines and the colors are very nice.

The ferries were stopped for a few years and their was a lot of public protest .  I also love the night shot,there are more to come.

And there's worse things to pay for than the ferry services. After all they could build a bridge too smile

We already have 2 tunnels and a bridge is coming towards the north of Antwerp

Well, then the ferries will have to stay, because it's not a small distance between Temse and Antwerp to drive for the next bridge smile
