WETA Expands Ferry Service to East Bay

This month the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) Board adopted the final plan to launch new service to Seaplane Lagoon in Alameda and deliver a faster nonstop service to Oakland to help meet growing demand for commuter ferry service. This new service change will deliver a third ferry route to Alameda when Seaplane Lagoon terminal opens in mid-2020, and will help drive more housing and commercial development adjacent to the terminal on the former Naval Air Base. This service change will help promote transit-oriented development around the ferry terminal and will help the region meet its housing goals. BPC looks forward to continuing to work with members WETA and City of Alameda to secure the necessary funding to continue to expand these ferry services in the future.
