April 11, 2018 - Ferry Terminal Job Site Tour

Come join us for a tour of the San Francisco Ferry Terminal Expansion project conducted by the Water Emergency Transit Authority (WETA).  Ferry ridership is at an all-time high.  Gate E accommodates four ferry routes, serving more than 10,000 passengers with 130 arrivals and departures daily.  More than two million people travel by San Francisco Bay Ferry annually.  During construction all routes currently operating through Gate E will continue to run as scheduled.  At the completion of the project, each of the three ferry gates will have its own portal, access control gates and passenger gangways.  The expansion will allow for additional ferry service, more routes, improved queuing and boarding areas, and extended staging for WETA to deliver emergency water transit services.   


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements will be enforced (work boots/hiking boots, hard hats, vests and safety glasses are required).  Please wear long pants and boots.  If you have your own PPE, please bring it with you.  There will be some PPE available on site, for those who do not have their own.


Please register early as we need to provide a final headcount to WETA by April 4th.
