Routes & Schedules

San Francisco Bay Ferry is currently offering weekday service on three routes. Major schedule enhancements are scheduled to begin in July.

HOLIDAY SCHEDULE ALERT: We will run special schedules on Memorial Day on Monday, May 31, 2021.

Active Routes

Alameda/Oakland

The Alameda/Oakland ferry route currently offers weekday service between Oakland, Main Street Alameda and Downtown San Francisco. This is the best option for passengers from Alameda, Oakland, Berkeley and neighboring communities.

Vallejo

The Vallejo ferry route currently offers weekday service between Vallejo and Downtown San Francisco. This is the ferry route for passengers from Solano and Napa counties.

Richmond

The Richmond ferry route currently offers weekday commute service between Richmond and Downtown San Francisco. This is the best option for riders in Contra Costa County.

Temporarily Suspended Routes

Harbor Bay

The Harbor Bay ferry route offers weekday commute service between Harbor Bay and Downtown San Francisco. The Harbor Bay Ferry Terminal is located on Bay Farm Island in the City of Alameda. This is also a good option for commuters from San Leandro.

South San Francisco

The South San Francisco ferry route provides weekday commute service between Oakland, Main Street Alameda and South San Francisco. This is the route for East Bay residents who work in South S.F., especially near Oyster Point or at SFO.

Future Routes

Alameda Seaplane

The Alameda Seaplane ferry route will soon offer weekday commute service between Seaplane Lagoon in Alameda and Downtown San Francisco. This will provide better commute service for both Alameda Island residents using the new Alameda Seaplane route as well as Oakland commuters using a reworked Oakland & Alameda route.

Seasonal Sports Routes

San Francisco Bay Ferry typically offers service connecting Vallejo, Alameda and Oakland to Oracle Park for Giants home games and service connecting Alameda and Oakland to Chase Center for Warriors games. These services are currently suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Short Hop Routes

Pier 41 S.F. and Mare Island are currently inactive due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Alameda Short Hop

The Alameda Short Hop connects Main Street Alameda and Oakland via a 10-minute trip across the Oakland Estuary. This is a great option for Alamedans who are commuting to or visiting Oakland.
