Larkspur Ferry adds early morning service for Bay to Breakers

A Golden Gate catamaran and the MV San Francisco arrive at the San Francisco Ferry building

Want to arrive at the starting line of the annual Bay to Breakers race relaxed and ready to run? It’s easy – ride Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry! We’re adding 5 early morning trips (at 5:30, 6:45, 7:00, 8:00, and 8:45) on Sunday, May 15 to our SF Ferry Terminal, which is a few blocks away from the starting area.

The one-way fare is $10.50, and discounts for Clipper, youth, seniors, and disabled apply. All customers are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to avoid long lines at the ticket machines!

For complete details, visit or call 511 (say “Golden Gate Transit,” then “operator” to bypass recorded messages)/TDD 711. The Golden Gate Customer Service Center is open weekdays from 7am to 6pm.

Note: Race participants are strongly advised not to bring backpacks or other bags larger than 8.5″x11″x4″ on the ferry as these items may not be left on the ferry and are not permitted on the racecourse. Golden Gate Ferry will have added security, and random inspections are possible. Appropriate attire required at all times.
