"We have been working hard with our partners - the cities of Alameda and Vallejo, ports and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission - to complete the plan on a pretty short timeline," said Shirley Douglas, WETA community relations manager.
"We are hopeful that there may be some efficiencies with one operator and a single contract," Douglas noted. At the same time, WETA hopes to move ahead on adding two new services (Berkeley to San Francisco, and South San Francisco to the East Bay) that will also be operated under the new contract. By the end of the fifth year, the agency expects to be providing 94 ferry trips per weekday using a fleet of 14 vessels carrying 1.7 million passengers per year. WETA will also continue to plan for future expansion projects that could be developed beyond the five year Implementation Plan period if additional funding sources are identified. According to Douglas, even the first expansion services may be subject to slowdowns if Proposition 1B funds are not available as promised. "We are proceeding as if Proposition 1B money will be there," she said.
