Treasure Island Ferry Terminal
A new ferry terminal on the western shore of Treasure Island will provide easy access to San Francisco’s Financial District. An important link between the rapidly developing community of historic Treasure Island and San Francisco’s bustling downtown, the terminal was completed just in time for regular ferry service to begin in January 2022. The trip from the island to San Francisco’s Ferry Building takes only five minutes.
As an important part of the island, the pier is part of an assemblage that will ultimately include a 7,000 SF Ferry Shelter to accommodate residents waiting for the next ferry or other modes of transit that will be served by this intramodal hub, three Bus Shelters for SF MUNI and AC Transit riders, bus lanes and parking, as well as restroom facilities set within this waterfront plaza designed by AECOM.
The design of the Ferry Terminal pier tilts down subtly on the northern side of the pier to protect ferry users from the winds coming in through the Golden Gate, the roof becomes a lean, yet taut signature form that celebrates the island’s unique identity and introduces visitors to its blend of urbanity and powerful natural context.
