New Ferry Fares (Effective July 1, 2021)

New temporary fares for all San Francisco Bay Ferry routes will go into effect on July 1, 2021. These fares are lower for a period of one year to incentivize a return to the ferry and make the ferry competitive with other transportation options.

New schedules on all routes will also go into effect on July 1, 2021. See the new schedules.

The Vallejo monthly pass has been discontinued effective July 2021. We encourage frequent Vallejo ferry passengers to use Clipper to pay their fares. The significantly lower Clipper fares -- $9.00 each way, and $4.50 for those with Discount Clipper cards -- reflect the steep per-ride discounts previously available to monthly pass purchasers.
