Golden Gate Ferry Allows Folding Bikes Onboard its Vessels


Effective October 15, 2009, to further advance options for alternative modes of travel, Golden Gate Ferry (GGF) will allow folding bicycles aboard all of its vessels. Customers may stow a folding bike, in an appropriate carry-on bag, under their seat or in an alternate location deemed safe by the onboard crew. Folding bikes may not be stowed in the onboard bike racks reserved for regular, non-folding bicycles. Regular, non-folding bikes are allowed aboard GGF vessels on a first-come, first-serve basis, and capacities vary based on the type of vessel and the passenger load of a given trip.

In addition to allowing bikes onboard, the Larkspur Ferry Terminal has a number of bike racks that can be used, free of charge. There are 30 bike racks located outside the paid terminal area that can accommodate 2 bikes each, along with one bike rack inside the paid waiting area that can hold up to 11 bikes.
