Water Taxi Docks

Michigan Avenue Bridge

Access our dock, located on the River at 401 N. Michigan, from the north-east stairway along the Michigan Avenue Bridge near the Tribune Tower. This dock has direct service to Willis (Sears) Tower and to Navy Pier on the River route. Transfer at Navy Pier to access the Lake Taxis to the Museum Campus.

Please note:
Michigan Avenue dock is not in service this year due to construction; service will return in 2018.

Lake Taxi schedule from Dock Street to Museum Campus is the same as the River Taxi schedule.

Polk Bros Park at Navy Pier

Board the River Water Taxis at our dock at the southwest corner of Polk Bros Park at Navy Pier where Illinois St. turns into Streeter Dr. These taxis offer direct service to Michigan Avenue and Willis (Sears) Tower/Union Station.
