MacGregor floating terminals, for services such as water taxis or water buses are ideal for coastal shuttle services, providing smooth, safe access for foot passengers and provisions. They are built and installed in full compliance with guidelines for senior citizens and passengers with impaired mobility.
Smooth interface that ensures easy mobility and accesssability for all
Our customised turnkey systems usually comprise a pontoon and shore walkway. The user-friendly design ensures easy accessibility for all and enables smooth access via a stairless pontoon and bridge link; the surfaces of which are stable, firm and slip resistant. Passengers are able to access the water taxis in all tidal conditions without having to negotiate steps. Some terminals can accommodate ferries mooring overnight and so they are ideal for remote locations.
Port interface without other infrastructure requirements
Even though an island may not have a port initially, by installing a floating taxi terminal it is possible to benefit from a port interface without the requirement for any other infrastructure or investment.
