The service was launched in 2016 by the province of Liège , the city of Liège and the ""Nautic Loisirs"" sprl with a boat, the Vauban , and 3 boarding points ( Boverie park , Saucy and Grand Curtius footbridge ) 1 .

In 2017, with 45,000 people attending in 2016, the system was reinforced with the arrival of a second boat, the Atlas V , and the addition of 3 new stops betweenCoronmeuse and the Pont de Fragnée .

In 2018, in order to increase the visibility of the service, a river hub was installed on the Édouard Van Beneden quay opposite the Aquarium-Museum . This is designed to serve as a boarding point for river shuttles and the tourist fleet 2 .

The same year, the Frère-Orban , built specially for the River Shuttle, 25 m long and able to accommodate 150 people, replaced the Atlas V 3.
