Heading to Jax River Jams Presented by VyStar Credit Union this Thursday? Hop on the St Johns River Taxi and catch a ride directly to Riverfront Plaza. See DTJax from a different perspective and leave the stress of navigating Downtown Jacksonville to the professionals. Plus, you may even see a dolphin or two along the way!
Pick ups will start at 4:30 p.m. and will stop at the Doubletree Dock and Southbank Hotel Dock every 15-20 minutes to take you to Riverfront Plaza on the Northbank. Additionally, the River Taxi has recently obtained their 2COP license, allowing them to sell beer and wine onboard.
