Ferries are for tourist. On the Bay the average "windchill" would be 40 degrees so it is a stretch to imagine people lining up to see the Peninsula skyline.

Never understood why its so hard to run a ferry here. Seattle area has hundreds I think. We got way more water & people than they do too, probably

On another note, finally got around to reading the Bayfront Specific Plan in entirety. I had no idea those giant water slabs along the Bay Trail were parts of old San Mateo bridge, put there after it was demolished to make a boundary for the bay fill. Always wondered what the heck those giant slabs were!

I am not big on the pollution of ferry systems. They produce NOx which is a generic term for the nitrogen oxides that are most relevant for air pollution, namely nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO
2).These gases contribute to the formation of smog and acid rain, as well as affecting tropospheric ozone.

The Bay is way too sensitive to open it up to this deadly gas.
