A COMMON ALTERNATIVE


Public transportation using catamarans is present in some 36 countries, including Turkey, Croatia or Sri Lanka with GDPs similar to Lebanon’s. Almost all European costal countries use these kinds of systems. London has a complement to its metro on the Thames, Istanbul on the Bosphore to decongest its main bridge; Norway and Greece use it to link their islands and coasts, for people, goods and vehicles. Not to mention most of the US coasts, with New York as an obvious example.
