DUCK You! Operators, Businesses, Residents Spar Over Tourism


Tuesday morning's City Transportation Council on permit regulations was no duck soup. At the Circus, tour operators proposing amphibious "Duck" rides based on the Toulouse St. Wharf verbally sparred with residential and business opponents. The usual issues including proposed routes, traffic impacts, and noise pollution evoked the usual impassioned debate. Additionally, the Duck Boat's unique nature allowed for a few extra shots from the blind; the vehicles were characterized as both amusement park rides on one side, and death traps on the other.
