Would hovercrafts work as public transit around the Bay?

Now that Google are experimenting with ferries to get employees from San Francisco to Redwood City and then buses to Mountain View, I am thinking that this could be an innovative start to something more. Since Redwood City is still so far from Google and the South Bay, I was wondering if hovercrafts would be a better option.
Hovercrafts glide across the top of the water so dredging would not be necessary. They also glide up a boat ramp so no docking is necessary. They are also faster than traditional water craft. I have been on hovercrafts and they are very efficient at what they do.
I feel sure that this is something innovative worth pursuing. Does anyone have any comments? Civil discussion would be appreciated. Thanks.
