Golden Gate Ferry Service Cancelled For Tuesday Morning

Update 3:20 p.m. In the “boy it’s always something” department for commuters:

Over the weekend you were supposed to avoid the Golden Gate Bridge and maybe take a ferry because of the Doyle Drive demolition.

Tomorrow…reverse that.

Golden Gate Bridge District spokesperson Mary Currie confirms to KQED’s Mina Kim that Golden Gate Ferry service from Larkspur and Sausalito will be shut down tomorrow morning due to a strike action by members of the district’s unions, which are locked in a dispute with the district over worker contributions for health care.

“We would rather have our customers know tonight and make alternate plans then come to the terminal tomorrow and not have a boat to sail on,” said Currie. She said ferry service is scheduled to resume at 2:15 p.m. at Larkspur and 1:55 p.m. in Sausalito.
