Want to avoid to traffic at Nationals ball games? Try the water taxi.
For the second season, water taxis operated by Potomac Riverboat Co. will take baseball fans from Alexandria, Virginia to Nationals Park.
Willem Polak, company owner, says the 35- to 40-minute ride will get fans within about 100 yards of the stadium. The boat leaves 20 minutes after the last pitch of a game.
This year, the boat rides will be available for at least 50 games, including Opening Day on April 5. Tickets are $12 one way, or $20 round trip. Hot dogs, popcorn, soda and beer will be sold on the boat.
