Richmond Ferry Terminal

Richmond Ferry service to and from San Francisco is expanding, with a new trip in each direction on weekdays: eastbound at 11:20 a.m. and westbound at noon.

The service change will start Monday, April 3. There will be no changes to weekend service.

San Francisco Bay Ferry will make adjustments to its schedule on other routes starting April 3. They include:

Alameda Seaplane

A new 11:35 AM eastbound trip will replace the existing 11:25 AM, 11:50 AM and 12:20 PM trips. A new 9:05 PM eastbound trip will be added. There will be other minor timing changes, but no changes during peak commute times.

Harbor Bay

There will be minor schedule changes in the midday period.

On weekdays there are a number of minor changes in off-peak periods or directions. The most notable changes:

  • Northbound 2:20 PM departure to Vallejo will move to 1:55 PM (2:55 PM arrival)
  • Northbound 3:35 PM departure to Vallejo will move to 3:40 PM (4:40 PM arrival)
  • Northbound 8:25 PM departure to Vallejo and Mare Island will move to 8:10 PM (9:10 PM Vallejo arrival, 9:20 PM Mare Island arrival)

Some low-ridership off-peak trips will have a scheduled transit time of 65-70 minutes so we can reduce fuel burn.

On weekends there are minor changes throughout the schedule.
