Effective June 15, 2021, Golden Gate Transit and Ferry are no longer limiting the number of passengers on its buses and ferries, except for a six-foot distancing requirement around the bus operator area. 

Since the COVID-19 outbreak began in the Bay Area, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District (District), which operates Golden Gate Transit and Golden Gate Ferry, has followed recommendations from federal, state, and local public health officials when implementing measures to ensure the health and safety of employees and the public. As part of these measures, the District continues to disinfect all buses and ferries on a daily basis, and provide personal protective equipment to all bus operators and ferry staff.
