Commuters Embrace New Ferry Service
Prop SF is now servicing Emeryville from the Emeryville Marina commercial dock to San Francisco Pier 15 (near the Exploratorium) and back. Their small and comfortable ferries have individual seats, WI-FI, USB charging and bike racks. They operate Mon. – Fri. with morning and afternoon pickups. You must buy tickets online ahead of time, as they do not allow walk-ups. (Buy nine tickets and your tenth ride is free.) You can also call (650) 503-3779 for booking. It’s about a twelve minute ride for $9. Limited parking is available and is only $3 all day for travelers. Find out how to get there and where to park by watching a quick instructional video.
Originally offering ferry service only for Fortune 500 companies over the last years, Prop SF is now offering this revolutionary and fun means of travel to the public. With nine ports and 16 routes, all of their vessels are U.S. Coast Guard inspected and their leadership team makes your ride affordable, quick and safe. “An important driving force when we founded the company,” says CEO and Captain James Jaber, “was that we could improve people’s lives. That is at the core of our business. We can help people change their habits and get on the boat!”
It seems that a 12 min. ride to work in the morning on our beautiful San Francisco Bay would be a refreshing and inspirational way to start the day. No more bumper to bumper or searching desperately for parking at BART. Park, ride and relax. Though there is some parking, Emery Go Round would also be a great way to get down to the ferry dock in Emeryville. Next marina story: Improvements and Changes at the Emeryville Marina.
It’s all happening down at the docks in Emeryville. During the first seven days in December Fish Emeryville sent out two boats with 160 anglers. The catch? 1,600 Dungeness Crab, 42 Lingcod and 1,297 Rockfish. That’s a lot of crab.
