IN DOWNTOWN S.F. USE GATE G

On July 1, San Francisco Bay Ferry introduced new schedules featuring more weekday departures across the system than ever before.

Note: Alameda riders traveling before 9:40 a.m. on weekdays now use the new Alameda Seaplane route.

The new Alameda Seaplane ferry route provides direct ferry service between Alameda's new Seaplane Lagoon Ferry Terminal and Downtown San Francisco during peak commute periods. The revamped Oakland & Alameda route provides direct ferry service between Oakland and San Francisco during peak commute hours as well as midday, evening and weekend service between Oakland, the Main Street Alameda Ferry Terminal and San Francisco.

These bullets describe which service Alameda ferry riders should use based on their time and day of travel.

  • Peak weekday commute (before 9 a.m.): Alameda Seaplane (Harbor Bay if returning to Alameda before 3:30 p.m.)
  • Middays: Oakland & Alameda
  • Weekday evenings: Both routes suitable, check schedules for specific departure times
  • Weekends: Oakland & Alameda
