Various infrastructure works in the city (e.g., bridges, tunnels and roads) require people to seek more creative solutions. Moreover, pilot waterborne transport projects were assessed as having a positive impact. Currently there are three ways of crossing the river, to get to and from the port:
- The Water Bus on the Scheldt has six stops every half hour
- Kanaaldok ferry service: from June until October 2017, seven days a week, as a replacement for Lillobrug.
- Sint-Anna ferry service: between the left bank and the right bank.
These transport options can be used by cyclists, pedestrians and wheelchair users.
