    Note that this will make the gap between fares and the bridge toll even worse, encouraging Marinites to drive through San Francisco: http://thegreatermarin.wordpress.com/2014/04/14/even-as-bridge-tolls-increase-gap-with-fares-widens/

      If Marinites want a cheaper ferry, they need to approve a tax measure to fund it, like Alamedans have. Noone wants to hear the crocodile tears of people who prefer to drive than take a ferry if it’s marginally less out of pocket, and in fact probably still more expensive with gas, insurance, and the cost of maintaining their vehicle.
