South San Francisco Ferry Route

The South San Francisco ferry route will resume on November 8, 2021. See our press release.

Our South San Francisco ferry route is a perfect commute option for East Bay residents who work in South San Francisco, particularly in the Oyster Point area where our ferry terminal is located. We offer three trips to South S.F. from Oakland and Main St. Alameda on weekday mornings with three options to come back in the afternoon or evening. For the first time San Francisco Bay Ferry now also offers a single reverse trip in each direction. We have also dropped fares through June 2021 to make the ferry a competitive travel option.

Bring your bicycle on board the ferry and enjoy the best way to cross the Bay. See you on November 8!
