Will the taxis be running during the week of Spring break? Or just on the week end? If that is so , I think The Woodlands is missing out on customers. Also the boats need to be on a schedule and then it needs to be posted. The boats are never on time and people leave in disgust.

I know you can get on it at the mall. Where else can you get on and off. For example, if I want to get off at a restaurant along the way can I? Or, if I want to board from a restaurant, can I?

We waited for 1.5 hrs. for the boat to arrive in the 101 heat. Not very enjoyable. The air units leaked all over the seats on boat. 1st time The Woodlands disappointed me.

The hours on this website need to be updated and it should be clearly stated on here that the last ride of the day is at 6pm.

I would like to see a schedule posted. My grandchildren would love to ride the taxi but I don't want to stand out in the sun for 45-60 min. waiting for the taxi. Pls. post the times the taxi stops at each of the primary locations, i.e. the Pavilion.

As a new resident, I'd like to see the water taxi serve a more vital function than just being a tourist ride. Why not have a regular schedule, running every 10-15 minutes all day, so that residents can use it as an alternative to driving to work, to lunch or for shopping. As it is, the boats just sit idle most of the time.

I tried to tip the boat driver but he said they can't accept tips due to state funding or some nonsense like that. He was a nice guy and entertained all of us on the boat of about 30 people on there. I think he deserved to be tipped....That is unfair

I rode the Water Taxi the other day, and I would call it more of a "water bus" It starts at the mall and does a round trip back to the Mall. The Tour was entertaining and informative going out to the pavillion but the ride back was a repeat of what we just saw going out. Why can't we take the taxis on the other side out to Lake Woodlands??
