Community Building Tip: Boat Sharing

For my current set of tips, I'm using the list "101 Small Ways You Can Improve Your City.

43. Paddle to work. Bike share and ride share have become commonplace. But paddling to work is another thing entirely. In Minneapolis, a paddle share system lets commuters ride the Mississippi, traveling between two stations on the mighty river. Since the boat docks are connected to the city bike share system, it uses both modes of transportation to get you to work.

This would also work in any area with a major waterway.  Parts of the northwest have ferries all over the place and most folks own a canoe or kayak.
