Park Your Bike in a Rack Inside SECURED Area at Larkspur Ferry Terminal

Larkspur Ferry: Most morning and afternoon Larkspur commute trips operate at capacity with respect to the numbers of bikes that can be accommodated, making the secure bike parking at the Larkspur Terminal a great alternative to bringing your bike on board. Secure bike racks located inside the paid waiting area can accommodate up to 80 bikes; another 30 racks located outside the waiting area can accommodate 60 bikes. Cyclists can also choose to ride to the Sausalito or Tiburon Ferry where more bikes can be accommodated on board.

Stop at the Super Energizer Station at the Ferry Connection Pathway Bridge between 6:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.!

Sausalito Ferry: Up to about 200 bicycles (amount varies based on conditions and ridership) can be accommodated on the Spaulding vessel used for this route. Electric bicycles are NOT permitted. There are also several bike parking zones in downtown Sausalito very close to the Sausalito Ferry Landing.

Tiburon Ferry: The number of bicycles permitted on this route is dependent on vessel assignment. Electric bicycles are NOT permitted. Bike parking is located adjacent to the Ferry Landing.
