The Greater London Council has invited proposals from interested parties for a river commuter service linking central London at Charing Cross with a numbmer of piers downstream at Greenwich. The craft deployed for the riverbus service will need to operate at a speed of at least 30 knots with a high degree of manoeuvrability for berthing at intermediate piers at all states and strengths of the tide. Suggestions for an extension of the initial, limited operation in central London, both upstream and downstream, are also invited. The author briefly describes the different potential crafts for the proposed service.
