Good news for those planning to ride the ferry between Wednesday evening and Tuesday morning while the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is shut down:
Alameda police will relax parking enforcement near both of the city's ferry terminals, except for flagrant violations such as the blocking of driveways, sidewalks, handicap parking or fire hydrants, according to an announcement from the city manager's office.
The San Francisco Bay Ferry during the week will be running 10 boats instead of its usual eight, and on the weekend and Labor Day will have five boats instead of three, according to SF Bay Ferry spokesman Ernest Sanchez. More details of local ferry service are available here.
The announcement also notes that AC Transit’s Transbay lines running between the City of Alameda and San Francisco (Lines O, OX and W) will run instead to West Oakland BART and will charge only $2.90 one-way fare during the closure.
