Ferry Service Expanding to Keep Pace With Bay Area Growth
J.K. Dineen reports on the ongoing process of expanding ferry service in the San Francisco Bay Area, thanks to work underway at multiple Water Emergency Transportation Authority facilities.
"The $74 million expansion of the ferry terminal [in San Francisco], with the first phase set to be completed late next year, will triple the number of ferries that can stream in and out of downtown San Francisco," according to Dineen. The investment "will also create the infrastructure needed for new routes to Richmond, Treasure Island, Berkeley, Redwood City and San Francisco’s Mission Bay," and "[t]he terminal in Richmond is under construction while the others are in the planning stages."
Planetizen last checked in with local coverage of ferry service as a public transit option in the Bay Area back in April 2016.
