Mission Bay Ferry Under Consideration
The popularity of Mission Bay is undeniable.Â With new office buildings, UCSF Mission Bay hospitals, a proposed Golden State Warriors arena and a variety of new residential communities, it is one of San Franciscoâ€™s most dynamic neighborhoods.
Along with the new development and growth is a need to address local transit options. Â A San Francisco Examiner article covered a meetingÂ by Port of San Francisco officials who are supporting the idea of a new ferry terminal to service the Mission Bay neighborhood.Â According to Winnie Lee, a port engineer, the new terminal â€œâ€¦ will provide a critical ferry service between the southern waterfront, Financial District as well as the East and North Bays.â€
Currently San Francisco ferries only service Fishermanâ€™s Wharf and the Ferry Building; the new ferry service would help connect Mission Bay to other water-based regional transit. Â According to the San Francisco Examiner article, there are a number of potential locations for this proposed ferry service.Â One of the sites under consideration is nearby Agua Vista Park.Â Located less than 1 mile from One Mission Bay, Aqua Vista Park is a prime candidate for a new ferry terminal as it benefits from a nearby harbor, creating a wind shield which keeps the waters calm, a key condition especially during winter commutes.
According to the article, this new ferry terminal discussion is still under consideration and, if approved, service is projected to begin no earlier than 2022.Â To learn more about this potential local transit hub, read the San Francisco Examiner article here.
