Less than $5 on most routes

If you’ve ever ridden the ferry, you know that it’s the best way to cross the Bay. To make it even better, we have signficantly discounted our fares. The ferry ride is just $4.50 each way with Clipper. $9 for Vallejo. Less than bridge tolls on every route before you count up gas costs or parking.

We recommend you use Clipper to take advantage of our lowest fares and transfer discounts. But if you don't have, you can use the new San Francisco Bay Ferry app to buy tickets from your smartphone.
