Redwood City wants funding for a ferry service to San Francisco but San Mateo County Transit Districtsays that improving train service has a higher priorityand that local businesses should fund the ferry plan.While Redwood City estimates that 500 to 700 commuters would use the service daily, theMetropolitan Transportation Commission estimatesthat a Redwood City - San Francisco ferry linkwould add just 50 new daily riders and would cost10 times more than the Redwood City estimate.
