With the launch of the new Richmond Ferry Terminal, it is now easier than ever to get to Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park!
In addition to the ferry, there are a few options for getting back to San Francisco. You can jump on the number 74 bus and take that to BART or transfer to a Transbay Service bus.

The excitement on the Richmond waterfront Thursday was palpable, as hundreds gathered to celebrate the launch of brand new ferry service to downtown San Francisco.
The first ferry left at 6:10 a.m. from the new $20 million terminal located next to The Craneway Pavilion at 1414 Harbour Way South. The ferry continued on to the San Francisco Ferry Building, a roughly 35-minute trip that was depicted in a flurry of photographs and video posted to social media. Richmond Mayor Tom Butt, credited as one of the ferry terminal’s champions, filmed what he called a smooth ride on a beautiful morning.
