A sign is building excitement for the launch of Richmond ferry service.
San Francisco Bay Ferry service turned heads locally today after sharing a photo of a sign posted recently at the waterfront site near the Craneway Pavilion, where a ferry terminal’s construction is coming along.
You can follow updates of the terminal’s construction here.
The new sign caught the attention of Richmond Mayor Tom Butt, who shared the development on social media.
“The anticipation is building!” the mayor wrote. “Nice new banner at the ferry terminal construction site!”
Ferry service is scheduled to launch Jan. 10. The plan at the start is four runs from Richmond to San Francisco during morning commute hours, and four runs from San Francisco to Richmond during the evening commute hours, with limited reverse commute service. The adult cash fare will be $9, with Clipper Card users receiving the discounted fare of $6.75. The disabled, youth (5-18 years) and senior (65+) rate is $4.50. Click here for fare details.
