Point Ferry Terminal Event Next Thursday
The City of Alameda, the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) and Alameda Point Partners have announced that the groundbreaking of the Seaplane Lagoon Ferry Terminal at Alameda Point will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., next Thursday, Sept. 12. The partners will break ground on the shores of the lagoon at West Oriskany Avenue and Ferry Point.
The city considers the new ferry terminal a key feature of “The Point,” Alameda Point Partners’ 68-acre transit-oriented waterfront development. In addition the terminal will serve as an important part of the city’s strategy for expanding transit infrastructure and transportation options in Alameda. The terminal is a critical addition to WETA’s fleet. If all goes as planned, ferry service would begin in early 2020.
