Ferry passengers travelling between the North Bay and San Francisco may soon have access to the Internet during their commute.
The Golden Gate Transportation District is considering a plan to install wireless capabilities on its fleet of ferries. The program, which would cost $264,518, will be voted on Thursday by the district’s finance committee. If approved, it will go for final authorization before the full board of directors the following day.
Pending approval, the wireless system could be established within one to two months, said district spokeswoman Mary Currie.
Running daily routes from Larkspur and Sausalito in Marin to San Francisco, the ferries carry an average of 6,500 passengers a day.
