|Ferry arriving at new Richmond Terminal|
"Hopefully by this summer," Hall said. "Hopefully in May."
The Richmond terminal is adjacent to the Craneway Pavilion on Harbor Way South.
He said ridership has exceeded projections. "Overall, ridership of all the SF Bay Ferry service vessels has nearly doubled since 2012," he said.
In his presentation, Hall also talked about about new ferries coming into service in the next year.

The trip takes about 35 minutes dock to dock.
With the exception of a few dips in service (on rainy days), the ferries have been running with plenty of passengers, Hall said.
He also noted that the new service is popular with bicyclists.
"People like to bring bikes on the ferry and take them into the city to use."
Bike lockers are available at the Richmond Ferry Terminal in the 352-space parking lot.
Parking for motor vehicles is free there, for now.
Hall can be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
