Fog and rain couldn't keep the crowds from the Oyster Point Ferry Terminal Monday morning to celebrate a historic event: the launch of commuter ferry service between South San Francisco and the East Bay.
The first commuter ferry to launch in the Bay Area since 1992 was sent off with pomp and circumstance, with performances by the South San Francisco High School band and speeches by local politicians, including Congresswoman Jackie Speier and Mayor Richard Garbarino.
The ferry costs $7 each way for adults, though the first week of service is free. Passengers can use Clipper cards for their rides.
Significant funding for the terminal and ferries came from bridge tolls, Measure A sales tax and federal funds.
