Statement on Regional Measure 3 Decision
On January 25, 2023, the Supreme Court of California dismissed a legal challenge to voter-approved Regional Measure 3, which provides substantial operations and capital project funding for San Francisco Bay Ferry. WETA, the agency that provides San Francisco Bay Ferry service, provided the following statement from Board Chair Jim Wunderman.
“It’s a great day for current and future ferry passengers in the Bay Area. The funding for ferries included in voter-approved Regional Measure 3 is critical to ensuring the sustainability of an expanded San Francisco Bay Ferry service. As a staunch proponent of robust ferry funding in the measure through my role as President and CEO of Bay Area Council, I’m ecstatic that our collective vision to build a world-class ferry system for the Bay Area will be realized.”
