Richmond Ferry Terminal

richmond ferry
The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) is proposing to establish a new ferry route between the existing San Francisco Ferry Terminal and a new ferry terminal on the Ford Peninsula in the City of Richmond. Passengers would embark/disembark at the San Francisco terminal and at a proposed terminal on the Ford Peninsula on the southern waterfront in the City of Richmond.

The proposed terminal site is approximately 1.5 miles south of the Richmond downtown core, and will create a new route to San Francisco within 30 minutes. Construction is expected to commence in Summer 2017, with ferry service to San Francisco beginning in early 2018. For more information, please visit WETA's Richmond Ferry Terminal Project webpage.
