There’s a New Dolphin on the Bay

On Monday (March 25) Bay Area Council President and CEO Jim Wunderman joined his fellow SF Bay Ferry board members, Assembly Transportation Committee Chair Lori Wilson, Vallejo Mayor Robert McConnell and other leaders at the Vallejo Ferry Terminal to celebrate the commissioning of the MV Delphinus, SF Bay Ferry’s newest and cleanest passenger vessel to join the fleet. The MV Delphinus, which comes from the Greek word meaning dolphin, is among the cleanest passenger vessels in the nation and will operate primarily on the Vallejo route, providing a clean, safe, and relaxing way to cross the bay.

“SF Bay Ferry is building a world class ferry system for the Bay Area, and adding new vessels like MV Delphinus helps us get there,” said Jim Wunderman who also serves as Chair of the SF Bay Ferry Board of Directors. “This ferry enhances the capacity of our fleet and provides additional flexibility for our operations, helping ensure we run the system as efficiently as possible. It also happens to be a beautiful ferry. We thank our local, state and federal partners for their investment in San Francisco Bay Ferry service.”

The addition of the MV Delphinus marks the continuing expansion of regional ferry service that the Council envisioned long ago when it played a leading role in the creation of SF Bay Ferry. The Council has also played an instrumental role in securing state and federal funding to start construction on the nation’s first high-speed zero-emission ferries.
