San Francisco Bay Ferry is preparing its staff and crew for a potential August 5 BART strike.

In the event of a strike, SF Bay Ferry will implement the following service and schedule enhancements to assist as many passengers as possible in getting around the Bay:

  • Expanding the number of boats in operation during the last BART strike from 12 to 13, including two boats on-loan from Golden Gate Ferry. Normally, only eight boats are in SF Bay Ferry service.
  • Adding an additional landing at Golden Gate Ferry¹s San Francisco Ferry Building facility to help reduce dock congestion and carry more passengers.
  • Increasing runs between Oakland Jack London Square, Alameda Main Street and Harbor Bay, Vallejo and the Ferry Building.
  • Adding earlier and later departure times to the previous BART strike schedule. To include: a 5:00 a.m. departure from Vallejo, and a 5:30 a.m. Oakland departure to the Ferry Building; and 8.30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. departures from the Ferry Building to Oakland.
