People who have been using a water taxi to go back and forth to Louisville men's basketball games from southern Indiana will have to find another way after the Cardinals' game against Kentucky on Friday.

Jeffersonville, Ind., Mayor Tom Galligan told The Courier-Journal in Louisville that not enough people were using the taxi.

The city had been using Louisville's Spirit of Jefferson boat for two trips each before and after games, hoping fans would be lured to Jeffersonville restaurants across the Ohio River from the new KFC Yum Center and allowing them to avoid traffic congestion in downtown Louisville.

The boat can hold 260 riders, but Galligan says only 12 to 40 riders have used the taxi each of the last three games.

The service has been offered for a cost of $10 per round trip.
