Alcatraz Ferry Public Comment Ends This Month

If plans to move the embarkation site for the Alcatraz Ferry to Fort Mason become reality, local residents and businesses worry that the area isn’t prepared to handle an influx of foot and vehicular traffic every day.

Fort Mason’s Pier 3 is only one of three possible new embarkation site options that are being considered. The other two are Pier 31 and Pier 41. All three options would include retrofitting existing structures and construction of new berths along the piers.

The public comment period ends May 20. Details on the project are available at

Documents relating to the project can be viewed at the San Francisco Public Library’s Marina branch.
