Beginning June 4, Bay Area residents will have a new way to cross the bay. Commuters will be able to take the ferry service between Oyster Point in South San Francisco and Oakland and Alameda in the East Bay. Each trip takes about 35 minutes and costs $7 per person. Seniors, youths and disabled persons pay $3.50. Children below the age of five ride free. Free parking is provided at the three locations. Authorities estimate this service will serve about 200 commuters each day.
