I read on Nextdoor gossip that Genentech and Benicia are trying to sneak in a ferry using the Benicia 9th street ramp. horrible.

I can't get outraged by this. We live on a major waterway. It is unreasonable to think that we get to enjoy it for recreation but that it should not be used for commerce or transportation. And anything that contributes to improving the commute traffic is a benefit to all.

Benicia has a long history of ferry traffic. If this is done right, it could be a benefit to the whole area.

Well it all depends on who's using it. If the majority are those who send funds back to their country of origin and bring all their decrepit reletives. plan on taking it all back when they retire it's no good.

Correct. But they are paying (a nominal amount, granted) for it, planning to stop in twice a day for 15 minutes. Wouldn't it be nice if this led to the pier at the bottom of East 5th being rehabbed for this purpose?

its sure will be nice for the 20-50 employees of Genentech only.

i'm sure google and other companies will add several more 15 minutes stops there afterwards and soon enough its taken away from public use
