Richmond Ferry service suspended during coronavirus lockdown

Richmond Ferry ridership exceeds first month expectations
Passengers board the ferry via the Richmond terminal during the launch party and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019.

Richmond Ferry service has been suspended until at least April 7 due to the shelter-in-place order in the Bay Area that aims to reduce transmission of the coronavirus, or COVID-19.

The Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) has also suspended service on the Harbor Bay and South San Francisco ferry routes, reduced weekday service on the Alameda/Oakland and Vallejo routes, and have suspended all weekend service.

“Those with essential transit needs during this period of reduced service should visit to determine their options,” according to WETA, which asks existing passengers and crew to practice social distancing at terminals and on boats.
