Officials in Philadelphia say the amphibious boat tour company involved in a deadly collision was the only bidder in a plan to bring duck boats back to the city's waterways.

The chief of staff for Managing Director Rich Negrin says it's still not a given that Ride the Ducks will restart service in the wake of the July 7 collision that killed two Hungarian tourists.

Brian Abernathy tells the Philadelphia Daily News the bid from Ride the Ducks was the only one the city received by Wednesday's deadline. But he says representatives from several city departments
must decide if the bid will be approved.

Officials want to move the amphibious tours from the Delaware River to the quieter Schuylkill River. The proposal has drawn opposition from community groups.
