New Parking Restrictions at Harbor Bay Terminal

For residents adjacent to the Harbor Bay ferry terminal, the City will be addressing spillover parking in their neighborhoods starting August 1, when new parking restrictions take effect.

For residents adjacent to the Harbor Bay ferry terminal, the City will be addressing spillover parking in their neighborhoods starting August 1, when new parking restrictions take effect.

 

For Harbor Bay ferry riders, parking in the adjacent residential neighborhoods will no longer be an option, as those streets will be limited to four-hour parking without a permit.  The 250-space parking lot with bike parking is one of several ways to get to the ferry. In addition to the parking lot, you can take a free bus – AC Transit Line 21 – to the ferry or you can bike, walk, or share a ride using one of the private carpooling services.

 

The City Council and the homeowner associations in the area – Headlands, Columbia and Harbor Bay Isle – approved a residential permit parking program for the Headlands and Columbia areas on February 21, allowing parking for up-to four hours unless the vehicle has a valid permit. Enforcement of two-hour parking along Adelphian Way also will begin August 1.

       

Parking tickets will be issued by the Alameda Police Department to motorists who do not obey these parking restrictions. Parking for ferry riders continues to be allowed at the ferry terminal, which also has bicycle parking available. These new parking restrictions will help minimize disruption to adjacent residential neighborhoods, and will encourage people to bicycle, walk, take transit, or carpool to the ferry.
