On Monday, November 4th, 2019, the winter ferry schedule for San Francisco Bay Ferry will begin.
Please note the following changes:
- The trial period of the Richmond Ferry weekend service ends on November 3rd, 2019. There will be no weekend ferry service from Richmond to San Francisco during the winter. Richmond Ferry weekday service will remain unaffected.
- The 6:05 PM weekday departure from San Francisco to Alameda and Oakland will move up to 6:00 PM in an effort to reduce congestion in the East Bay ferry terminals.
- Reduced winter demand for weekend service on the Vallejo Ferry and Alameda/Oakland Ferry routes will result in a seasonal reduction in weekend ferry service on these routes.
- The weekday Vallejo departure to San Francisco that traditionally occurs at 10:00 AM in the winter season will be moved to 10:15 AM.
All of our San Francisco Bay Ferry schedules will be updated to reflect the winter season changes.
