San Francisco Dedicates New Ferry Terminal

With Mayor George Moscone declaring the Golden Gate Bridge District Ferry System "an important transportation link to San Francisco's new downtown," civic dignitaries and U.S. Department of Transportation officials recently dedicated the new $3-million San Francisco Ferry Terminal at the foot of Market Street east of the historic Ferry Building.

Stephan C. Leonoudakis, Bridge District director, stated that every five passengers that ride Golden Gate ferries or buses remove four automobiles from the Golden Gate Bridge congestion.

The new Ferry Terminal, under construction since early 1977, was 80 percent funded by the Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) of the U.S. Department of Transportation. UMTA has provided better than 70 percent of the f i n a n c i n g for the District's three modern Jacuzzi water-jet-propelled ferryboats and the converted ship that makes the Sausalito run.
