It was so successful we thought we’d offer it up again! It’s another evening of $5 round trip rides this Sunday, August 19th, from 6 pm until the last boat leaves City Pier to Thames River Landing in Groton at 8:40 pm.
“The Five After Six promotion to encourage more riders to use the water taxi to enjoy dinner and evening activities in downtown New London was an overwhelming success when we launched it on August 5th, so it made sense to bring it back,” says Thames River Heritage Park Executive Director Amy Perry. “Riders who combine this promotion with patronizing those restaurants and merchants who participate in our Ride & Save Program will have a terrific and inexpensive night out.” The Ride & Save Program allows riders to show their water taxi ticket or season pass at participating merchants for discounts and special offers. Restaurants are encouraged to offer their own 5 after 6 promotion such as Fatboy’s Kitchen and Bar’s promotion of $5 appetizers after 6 pm.
On Sunday, riders getting on the water taxi at 6 pm at Fort Trumbull, at 6:20 pm and later at City Pier and at 6:40 pm and later at Thames Landing, Groton will pay $5 for this one night only. After 7 pm the water taxi runs between City Pier and Thames River Landing every 20 minutes beginning at 7:20 pm. Click here for more information about the water taxi fares and schedules. Tickets for this promotion are available for purchase on the boat only.
