Hovercraft service a year away

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Hovercraft rides across Lake Ontario are a step closer to becoming a reality.

St. Catharines city councillors gave the plan their approval in principle Monday night.

Beamsville resident Bruno Caciagli, who has spent the past two years developing the plan as an alternative to spending hours in traffic gridlock, hopes the first trip will set sail next June.

The plan, proposed by Caciagli’s company Lake Ontario Express — a consortium of several businesses — would start with a fleet of two hovercraft, each making seven round trips per day carrying commuters between Port Dalhousie and Toronto at a cost of about $25 per trip.
