East Bay commuters will be able to ferry to South San Francisco beginning June 4 on weekdays during peak commute hours.

Vessels will depart three times during the morning from the Main Street ferry stop in Alameda and Jack London Square in Oakland. Two ferries will leave from South San Francisco's Oyster Point ferry terminal in the evening.

The trip will take about 50 minutes in each direction. The vessels are equipped with Wi-Fi, food, beverages and bicycle storage. Peninsula Congestion Relief Alliance and Genentech shuttles will meet ferry arrivals and deliver riders to their workplace. Free parking is available near or on site all the three terminals, according to the operator, San Francisco Bay Ferry.

A one-way adult fare for the East Bay-South San Francisco route will cost $7. Seniors, disabled people and youth ages 5-12 pay $3.50. Clipper cards, credit cards and cash will be accepted.

Fares are free the first week of service. Commuters can reserve a complementary seat on a first-come, first-served basis and find information at www.sanfranciscobayferry.com.
