Richmond Ferry Terminal

The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) is establishing a new ferry route between the existing San Francisco Ferry Terminal and a new ferry terminal 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 City of Richmond's southern waterfront.

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 commenced in 2017 with ferry service to San Francisco beginning in 2018. For more information, please visit WETA's Richmond Ferry Terminal Project webpage.
