Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Since Diamond Teague Park and Piers opened last summer across the street from Nationals Park, the focus has been on water taxi service tied to baseball games, and the Potomac Riverboat Company has been first out of the gate with gameday trips from its Alexandria pier, starting in September of last year and continuing this year, beginning on Opening Day (April 5).
But there could also be another company on the horizon. American River Taxi is working on plans to offer what it says will be "regular runs" of "eco-friendly" water taxis between Teague, the Gangplank Marina on the Southwest Waterfront, Washington Harbor in Georgetown, and Alexandria, with shuttle connections to the Foggy Bottom and L'Enfant Plaza Metro stations from Georgetown and Southwest. (Their map also shows possible future service to National Harbor, Poplar Point and National Airport.) The company's owner, Shaun Guevarra, says that there are plans to eventually offer discounted service to residents of Southeast and Southwest, along with rechargeable account cards and mobile payment options.
There will be two boats initially, according to the company's web site, and they are being built by Watermarque Marine. The schedules and prices are to be posted soon, Guevarra says, and his company will be in attendance at the Southwest Waterfront this Saturday evening (April 3) as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival's Prelude to Fireworks.
New ventures don't always have the easiest path to launch, of course, so it will be interesting to see how this pans out, with exactly how many runs per day between the locations, the price, etc. etc. The service is targeted to start in the second quarter of this year.
Will post more as I get it.

This is such a good idea. I'm from Chicago and these suckers were major time savers and frequently an enjoyable ride!

Sounds like a scheduled ferry service, and not a water taxi at all.
