WETA’s long-awaited, beautiful Downtown San Francisco Ferry Terminal expansion was officially completed and opened to the public in mid-August. The expansion triples WETA’s San Francisco Bay Ferry capacity in the city core, creates resilient infrastructure for emergency response activities and provides the public with a grand new open space on the San Francisco waterfront.
New and refurbished ferry gates had previously opened. The 13,000-square-foot plaza opened to the public for the first time on August 12.
The expanded Downtown S.F. terminal is a capstone on a decade of deep, serious investment by WETA in the regional ferry system and the platform for the next era of growing water transit. You can learn more about project and see photos at sfbf.mobi/downtown.
