Golden Gate Ferry Service Delays

Due to various construction projects and dredging in the Bay, Golden Gate ferries have recently had some service delays, with more delays expected in the coming weeks.

We are advising all ferry riders of potential minor delays through mid October. We expect the delays to be between 10 and 15 minutes. In general, due to the nature of the work, it is not possible to predict exactly which trips may be impacted by delays. “Golden Gate Ferry operations staff and vessel crews are working with the various contractors in an effort to minimize all unavoidable delays,” says Golden Gate Ferry Deputy General Manager, Jim Swindler. “We apologize for the disruption and ask all our customers to plan for extra travel time as we improve our facilities.”

We are issuing a specific alert regarding Golden Gate Ferry travel at the San Francisco Ferry Terminal from August 21 to 24, September 10 to 14 (date changed due to maintenance emergency), and October 16 to 18. Delays may occur on these dates between 9 a.m. on the Friday morning to 5 a.m. on the Monday morning. During these times, we will be working on the inner and outer berths at the terminal in order to retrofit and replace the boarding ramp cylinders. This is part of a larger overhaul of the terminal which includes replacing the roofs, replacing the water and sewer lines, and repairing and repainting the walls. Passengers should be prepared for delays on all trips during these days.
