Bay Ferry bumps fares July 1

A number of daily adult fares on the San Francisco Bay Ferry are going up anywhere from 5 cents to 40 cents starting July 1, according to the Water Emergency Transportation Authority, which operates the ferry.

Fares are going up to offset projected increases to operating costs and are part of an approved five-year fare program, according to WETA.

Among the key changes, the adult cash fare and adult Clipper fare for service from Oakland or Alameda to San Francisco’s Ferry Building or Pier 41 will increase 15 cents and 5 cents, WETA officials said.

The adult cash fare for service between Alameda’s Harbor Bay and San Francisco’s Ferry Building will increase 20 cents. The adult Clipper fare will remain the same, according to WETA officials.

The adult cash fare and the adult Clipper fare for service between South San Francisco and the East Bay will increase 40 cents and 20 cents, according to WETA.

The adult cash and adult Clipper fares for service between Vallejo and San Francisco’s Ferry Building or Pier 41 will increase 40 cents to $13.40 and 35 cents to $10.10. The fare for service between Vallejo and San Francisco for youth, seniors and the disabled will increase 20 cents to $6.70, according to WETA.

WETA officials said the monthly pass for service between Vallejo and San Francisco will increase $17 from $290 to $307.
