Talk:London River Services
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the London River Services article.|

The article contained the following statement:
- The River Thames is generally no more than 30m wide as it runs through central London, ...
Now I know the Thames isn't a hugely wide river, and I don't disagree with the general sentiment of the sentence containing this statement, which is making the point that the river is easily bridgeable. But 30 metres is only the length of three London buses parked nose to tail, and I'm sure you could park many more than that across (say) London Bridge. Also Thames Clippers latest boats are 38 metres long (http://www.thamesclippers.com/fleet/view/193) and would have serious problems turning in a river only 30 metres wide.
- In fact, using Google maps I now suspect that this was a typo. Throughout central London, the river width seems to vary from around 250m to just under 300m, suggesting that 300m was the intended 'generally no more than' width. I shall reinstate, with amendment. -- Chris j wood (talk) 00:41, 26 April 2008 (UTC)
Right place to mention
I deleted this statement from the leisure services section as not being relevent to the transport services.
This is already mentioned in the "operators" section along with other private tour companies. The said section I removed it from is about the tour services that are operated by Transport for London. trainfan01 9:58, 22 August, 2010 (UTC)
Shouldn't you mention the lines (I mean RB1, RB2 etc)? They are so frequently mentioned when talking about river buses that I suggest they also be mentioned in Wikipedia. The sources are the official TFL website and the official ThamesClippers website: here (TFL), here (TFL) and here. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:59, 6 December 2014 (UTC)
