I love the ferry. What I like most is how quiet it is. While all the morning commuters angrily inch across the gridlock of the Bay Bridge above, or packed trains screech below the water, you glide quietly through the fog towards the hills of the city. And on the afternoon commutes, they serve beer. Hard to beat.
I don’t have a regular work schedule, and Google Maps does not include ferry info, so taking one in the morning requires a little planning. What would make taking the ferry easier is if Home Assistant could look up the times for me.
