A Quick Overview of Thames Clippers
Thames Clippers (styled as MBNA Thames Clippers) is a river bus service on the River Thames in London.
The company operates both commuter services between eastern and central London and tourist services under licence from London River Services. At present they transport around 8,500 passengers daily.
- Sean Collins co-founded Thames Clippers in 1999 with partner Alan Woods.
- During his career Sean recognised the opportunity to build a consistent high-speed commuter and passenger river service.
- Thames Clippers was then taken over in September 2006 by the American Anschutz Entertainment Group, who promised substantial investment into the company to upgrade the services and to provide a more frequent "hop-on-hop-off" between Central London and The O2 (formerly the Millennium Dome), also owned by the Anschutz Entertainment Group
