New Ferry Terminal In Works For South San Francisco

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Officials expect to break ground in the next few months on a new ferry terminal in South San Francisco that will run boats to Oakland’s Jack London Square.

Crews have finished dredging the harbor and removing boat slips at Oyster Point Marina in preparation for the new $26 million terminal, according to Water Emergency Transportation Authority.

Michael Gougherty, a planner with the authority, told the San Francisco Examiner officials are now completing design plans and expect to start construction in the next few months.

He said the terminal could be open by fall 2011. It is expected to serve 1,000 riders by 2025.

The new terminal is part of a plan to triple ferry service in the Bay area over the next 25 years.
