Larkspur Ferry Shuttles - They're Free and Convenient!

Great news for Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry riders from Ross Valley and central and northern Marin!

Larkspur Ferry riders wishing to eliminate the expense and hassle of parking—and the wear and tear on their vehicles—now have three ferry shuttles to choose from to get them to and from the ferry terminal: Route 25 from Ross Valley, Route 31 from central San Rafael, and Route 41 from northern San Rafael.

Shuttles operate inside the ferry terminal and serve weekday commute and some weekend ferry trips, too! The shuttle ride is free when transferring to/from a ferry trip. Clipper customers simply tag on when they board the shuttle and then tag off when they exit the shuttle. Cash customers pay the ferry fare when they board the shuttle, and they'll be issued a "transbay" transfer to present to the terminal agent at the Larkspur Terminal. Local riders (customers not transferring to/from a ferry) must pay the local bus fare using cash or a Clipper card.

All ferry shuttles are equipped with free WiFi, which is easy to use (look for the "GGT-WIFI" network) and allows customers to check email, post their favorite transit photo on social media, or surf the Internet while they ride.

RIDE A SHUTTLE & GET FREE FERRY TICKETS! All passengers who ride a morning Larkspur Ferry Shuttle on Thursday, July 19, 2018, will receive FREE round trip Golden Gate Ferry tickets (a $24 value!) when they arrive at the Ferry Terminal. Tickets are valid on any Golden Gate Ferry trip.
