It's About to Cost You More to Use the Larkspur Ferry Terminal

Increased parking fees take effect on Monday.

It will cost $2 to park at the Larkspur Ferry Terminal on weekdays between 5 a.m. and 3 p.m. starting Monday.
Parking after 3 p.m. on weekdays and all day on weekends is free. A pre-paid monthly parking pass is $20.
Parking is on a first-come, first-served basis for daily and monthly parkers, and all vehicles must be removed after 24 hours or they will be subject to towing.

The parking fees do not apply on New Year's Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. The parking fees will help the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District maintain the 1,808-space parking lot.

The parking fees are expected to generate $450,000 annually.

The District faces a $142 million shortfall over the next five years.

Monthly parking permits are available online at the Larkspur Ferry Monthly Permit website. Registration is required for daily parking permits.

A basic membership is available at www.parkmobile.com or by downloading the free Parkmobile mobile app. A license plate number is required.

Renee: I see you are the new editor of the Novato Patch. Can you actually cover Novato from your home near Palm Springs?

From what I can see, Renee has all of California to cover now that everyone else got fired.

Does this apply to people with disabilities as well. That would conflict with ADA requirements.

Hi Roger-- Though I will not personally be on the ground in the area, I do believe I'll be able to continue helping bring your community local news. (I do have a co-editor who is located in the Bay as well). Right now, staffing is far less than normal, as we're working hard to make significant improvements to the platform and to stabilize the business so we can serve our readers and communities for a long time to come. We'll be posting about our plans soon. In the meantime, we hope you will continue to contribute to Patch.

So that's two people in California total? Wow! Do you two even get paid? Sounds like the end is near.
