IMO, we should try to focus on a generic vocabulary for all kinds if trips and not create subtypes for each type of vehicle. A common conceptual model for boat, bus, helicopter, passenger plane, etc. trips should be doable, and we will actually already have necessary elements in schema.org.

We only need subtypes if the computational handling by major consumers of the data will be based on the new distinction. Also, subtypes make composite trips and trips with an unspecified means on transportation cumbersome to model.
