After yearning for the return of ferry service between San Francisco and Richmond, Richmond commuters will celebrate their answered wishes Thursday, January 10 starting at 6:10am, with the launch of what the city hopes will be just a stepping stone to a full ferry schedule.

SF on the Bay will be there to help greet WETA’s San Francisco Bay Ferry, which stocks the Richmond Trail Guide – the popular guide to where to eat, drink, stay and play in Richmond. The new terminal is located at the bottom of Harbor Way South where it meets the water at Craneway Pavilion. It’s the perfect launch pad for your Richmond Trek, whether it’s drinks and dinner after your workday in the city or a quiet bike ride back home to unwind.

Looking for things to do? www.VisitRichmond.com has quick access to events, restaurants, shops, pubs, trails, the regional parks and much more – for visitors and locals alike. Matt Lewis from Visit Richmond tells us that they are thrilled that a new Ferry will begin in Richmond, January 10th, with return service to San Francisco. “Come and experience the wonderful and diverse story of Richmond. Try our great restaurants, breweries and wine bars, shop in our eclectic shops, and get a fresh course in Bay Area history with our wonderful Rosie the Riveter Museum, and Richmond Museum of History. The Richmond Trail Guide will help you find your favorite places in Richmond!”

Every city has its unique vibe – Richmond’s is easy, friendly and welcoming.

So, join Visit Richmond, WETA (San Francisco Bay Area Water Emergency Transportation Authority, which oversees ferry service) and SF on the Bay and, well, the whole city, in welcoming our new San Francisco Bay Ferry. Pick up the Trail Guide and enjoy Richmo
