How Full is the Ferry? Ridership Data Shows Available Space

In an effort to assure passengers there is plenty of space for social distancing on board our ferries, WETA is releasing weekly rider occupancy charts. These charts show the previous week's average ridership for each peak-direction commute trip on the three active ferry routes. (Only data from Monday through Thursday is currently used. Fridays typically see lower commute ridership across the system.)

Currently and in accordance with public health guidance, approximately 45-55 percent of the seats on each vessel are unavailable to ensure social distancing. The charts include the average ridership for the previous week and the number of unused, available seats given that ridership level. Note that ridership does vary week to week and these charts should be used only as guides. If maximum capacity based on current social distancing reductions is reached on any departures, deckhands will suspend boarding and remaining passengers will need to wait for the next departure. WETA is monitoring ridership very closely and adding service as required to prevent this from happening.

NOTE: San Francisco Bay Ferry eased social distancing measures from 6 feet to 3 feet on board its ferries as of May 26, 2021. Updated capacities are reflected in the charts published after those dates.

LAST UPDATED: June 7, 2021

Vallejo

Note: Except in special circumstances, a 445-passenger Pyxis class ferry will be used on the 4:30 p.m. San Francisco departure to Vallejo. These vessels have a higher allowable capacity under current social distance guidelines than the smallest ferries used on the Vallejo route (MV Intintoli and MV Mare Island). These charts now reflect the higher allowable capacity on the 4:30 p.m. departure.
