The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) has announced it will resume San Francisco Bay Ferry service on the Richmond route and double service on the Vallejo route beginning Monday.

WETA has also adopted a six-point Passenger and Crew Safety Plan, formalizing safety measures put into effect to help prevent spread of COVID-19 in the Bay Area.

Service on three San Francisco Bay Ferry routes was suspended on March 17 in response to regional shelter-in-place orders.

WETA reduced service on the Vallejo and Alameda/Oakland routes on March 17. Due to ridership increases on the Vallejo route, service increases will go into effect Monday. Decisions on further service enhancements and resumption of suspended routes will be made in the coming months as the economy opens up and travel and ridership demand increases.
