Jaywalking Concerns at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal

Every day, hundreds of Golden Gate Ferry passengers park in the overflow lot across the street from the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. Then, to shave a minute or two off their walk to the terminal, customers will often jaywalk across Larkspur Landing Circle. There's a bend in the road that limits both motorists and pedestrians' line of sight. Jaywalking is also illegal under California Vehicle Code 21955.

Golden Gate Ferry is posting notices to remind customers to stay safe on their walk to the Ferry Terminal and back to their cars.

"Give yourself another minute or two to walk to the crosswalk, cross with the light, and use the sidewalks when walking to and from the ferry," advises Priya Clemens, spokesperson for Golden Gate Ferry. "It’s tempting to cut across the road when you’re in a rush, but it’s just not worth the risk.”

For trip planning assistance, call 511 (say "Golden Gate Transit," then "operator" to bypass recorded messages)/TDD 711. The Golden Gate Customer Service Center is open weekdays, except holidays, from 7am to 6pm.
