Water Emergency Transportation Authority Public Hearing on Ferry Services
|April 4, 2009||Posted by jamie under Public Services||
The Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) is a government agency in charge of consolidating Vallejo and Oakland/Alameda ferry boat services to operate under their agency and establishing an emergency plan should ferry boats be needed after a natural disaster that impacts our typical transportation infrastructure.
Some of the things the Authority is working on include expanding ferry services to Berkeley and South San Francisco along with adding boats to the current fleet of vessels. A route between the Ferry Building and Treasure Island is on the drawing board too.
WETA invites the public to one of three special public hearings/special board meetings to provide oral input on the Draft Transition Plan for WETA to assume the operation of the City of Alameda and City of Vallejo ferry services. The meetings will also discuss the Draft Emergency Water Transportation System Management Plan. The Draft Plans can be found at the Authority’s web site: Transition Plan and Emergency Plan.
