WETA Awarded Grant to Build Electric Ferry

SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) today announced that it has been awarded $3.4 million by the U.S. Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to build a zero-emission, electric ferry to connect San Francisco’s growing Treasure Island and Mission Bay neighborhoods.

“With this new funding, WETA will be able to deploy a new zero emission ferry, which will offer easier commutes for workers, ease congestion on our streets and ensure cleaner air for our communities. As a proud representative for San Francisco, it was my privilege to fight for this federal investment – and Democrats will not relent until we deliver clean, convenient transportation options to every family across the nation.”
