NEW DELHI: Road transport and shipping minister Nitin Gadkari on Monday said that Jawaharlal Nehru Port in Mumbai will get the first bus that can run on water surface, a move that will push more tourism activities in ports.

Only few days back the minister had talked of floating hotels, a ferris wheel and marinas and jetties to promote intra-city water transport in Mumbai.

Sources said that there are few international spots where such buses ply on water only for a short distance. These spots are major tourist attractions. More info
