My line of business is public transport and my goal is to launch the phenomenon of the public collective boat in Lyon in bringing another alternative of public transport in Lyon after the underground, the bus, the tramway and finally the vélo'v (free access to rent bicycles). This concept is not a real innovation for the city because in 1862 the district of the Mulatière with its docks and the Vaise' district with its warehouses, were linked by a line of omnibus boats. These fluvial shuttles carried around 4 million people per year between 1871 and 1905. Eventually this system of transport disappeared with the advent of new means of transport with tramways, buses and cars. A collective boat is a boat used for public transportation in cities with abundant water channels. Many cities, including New York City, Boston, Baltimore, Fort Lauderdale, London, and Tokyo have scheduled water taxis which operate like ferries or buses.
