No Alameda ferry service to Chase Center

During the closure, there will be no direct service from Alameda to Chase Center for Warriors games or other events. Alamedans who wish to use the ferry to get to Chase Center will have to take a bus, use a car service, or drive to and from the Oakland Ferry Terminal, located at 10 Clay St., in Jack London Square. Reservations are strongly recommended.



Up to 12 hours of free validated parking will be available at the Washington Street Garage at 101 Washington St., near the terminal. Parking must be validated at the Oakland Ferry terminal.

Why the closure?

The Main Street Alameda Ferry Terminal is being closed for refurbishment. This is a major construction project that includes the repair and replacement of the existing aging terminal infrastructure to bring the site into compliance with current seismic safety requirements. It will also prepare the terminal for future fleet electrification needs.

Upon completion of the project, passengers will see direct benefits, including more efficient ferry operations and modernized terminal lighting.

Service is expected to resume on January 2, 2024, including the Oakland & Alameda, South San Francisco, Alameda Short Hop, Oracle Park and Chase Center ferry routes. More details will become available closer to that date.

More information about the closure is available on the SF Bay Ferry website.
