Weekend services will launch on several ferry routes — including the Richmond-San Francisco route — starting on July 3.

It’s two days after the San Francisco Bay Ferry will lower fares for one year as a promotion to spur ridership. The Richmond-SF route will be reduced from the current $7 one-way for the Clipper adult fare to $4.50.

The Richmond route will also see the addition of midday and evening service during the weekdays, and enhanced peak-hour services.

Weekend services are also set to resume for the Vallejo, Alameda and Oakland routes on July 3.

Official schedules will be released on Wednesday, May. 19, according to San Francisco Bay Ferry.
