June 4: Golden Gate Ferry holds Open House to discuss Strategic Vision

On May 10, 2013, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District Board of Directors approved a Strategic Vision for Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry. The Vision includes a list of conceptual short- and long-term solutions aimed at alleviating the current lack of sufficient parking and lack of passenger capacity on several weekday Larkspur peak departures, while also continuing the recent trend in growing ridership.

Obtaining direct feedback from our customers is vital to the success of the solutions selected. On Tuesday, June 4, from 4 to 6pm, Ferry staff will host an Open House at the Golden Gate San Francisco Ferry Terminal to talk with ferry customers about the solutions up for consideration and evaluation. In addition, a survey will be available onboard our vessels on June 3 and June 4 for ferry customers to comment on several of the possible solutions.

The solutions up for discussion at the Open House and via the survey include gauging customer interest in the following:

  • Adding a high-speed ferry trip from Larkspur on weekdays at 7:30am;
  • Offering a free bus shuttle to the Larkspur Terminal;
  • Paying for parking at the terminal to help offset the costs of 1 and 2 above.

We encourage our customers to follow this process as it unfolds at www.goldengate.org/ferryvision.
