The water taxi of Oklahoma City is an attraction that distinctively belongs here. It’s one of the examples of the ingenuity of the city to come up with ideas that make life more enjoyable for its residents and visitors.
The water taxi, as the name suggests, is a taxi service that operates on water. Oklahoma’s Bricktown entertainment district features the Bricktown Canal that traverses through the district covering all the important entertainment and other destinations along the way. If you wish to check out the sights and sounds of life in Oklahoma City and the shops and activities along the banks of the canal, the best way to do it is to board a water taxi, have a comfortable ride, experience life in Bricktown firsthand before getting dropped at the Harkins Theatres, or one of the many eateries along the banks including Earl’s Rib Palace, Falcone’s Pizzeria, or Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar and Grill.
The other destinations a water taxi of Oklahoma City connects include the Red Pin Bowling Lounge, Residence Inn by Mariott and the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World. The dock to board a water taxi from, the Bricktown Riverwalk, is itself located below Mickey Mantle Boulevard and in close proximity to the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark.
A water taxi arrives every 10-15 minutes at the dock. One can board the water taxi here, from other docks in lower Bricktown, or the dock at the west end of the stream that leads to the Bass Pro Shops. The added advantage of boarding a water taxi of Oklahoma City is that you get valuable information about Bricktown from the “Water Taxi Ambassador”. Tickets can be purchased online at bricktownwatertaxi.com, from the ticket booth at the main dock or at Oklahoma’s Red Dirt Emporium.
Hotels in Oklahoma City can connect you to these boarding points through their shuttle services. There’s nothing like the water taxi of Oklahoma City to get to the heart of Bricktown and the city.
