Ferry Service Is Coming to Richmond

After a nearly 60 year hiatus, ferry service is coming back to Richmond.  The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) and the city of Richmond have broken ground on a ferry terminal at the site of a former Ford Motor plant on the Richmond waterfront.  In the above video, MTC’s Mark Jones provides an overview of the project as well as the state of water transportation in the Bay Area. 

The Richmond Ferry Terminal Project includes the construction of a terminal shelter, gangway and dock, improved pedestrian and bike facilities, a kayak launch ramp, ADA access, and parking for 362 cars. Weekday commuter ferry service between Richmond and San Francisco is expected to begin in September 2018.   Read More
