Discontinuing this ferry could have devastating consequences not only for the immigration station but for Angel Island State Park as a whole. According to the Park Service, camping at Angel Island was not reopened until recently because the Tiburon Angel Island ferry had not returned to operating every day. In light of this, loss of the San Francisco ferry could end camping, or even close the park. The Blue and Gold ferries to Angel Island proceed to Sausalito, but there was no discussion of Sausalito passengers in Patrick Murphy's economic analysis and I wonder if this is a new route. Does this consolidated route improve the economics of stopping at Angel Island? I hope for a resolution that can preserve both the park and the ferry service.

Please preserve ferry service between San Francisco and Angel Island. Born and raised in SF, as a child I distinctly remember school field trips visiting Angel Island, and learning about my family's personal history with the island as they were processed through the Immigration Station. I plan to introduce my children and our entire extended family's next generation to Angel Island, and the loss of the Blue & Gold Fleet's service would make that tremendously more difficult.

Please continue to offer ferry service between San Francisco and Angel Island. I value affordable access to this historic site and the quiet of nature only a few minutes from the city. The immigration center truly brings history to life and the poems carved in the walls create an emotional connection to the past.

Angel Island is a historic site and a great place for biking, hiking & camping. Thousands of Bay Area school children go on field trips each year, where they learn about the Bay, go on a boat (for many kids their first boat trip) and visit the West Coast’s detention center for Asian immigrants. The museum is fascinating and a reminder that although we are a nation of immigrants, people from other lands have not always been welcome. The poems carved into the walls are beautiful and heart-wrenching. Angel Island must remain accessible to the public with public, low cost ferry service.

Please consider continuing the ferry service from San Francisco to Angel Island. Angel Island is an integral part of American history. Like Ellis Island, this history should be maintained as a record for future generations to come.

Please continue the ferry service between SF and Angel Island. A.I. Immigration Station is a monument to the Page Act 0f 1975 which excluded Chinese women who were considered prostitutes and the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 which excluded Chinese male laborers. My father came through the Immigration Station as a young boy. He was a non-citizen who proudly served his country during WW2--and with Free China on the US side fighting Imperial Japan, the Chinese Exclusion Act was repealed in 1943 to save the US from embarrassment. And yet he never spoke about his time on A. I. I want our family and others to experience firsthand what he and others immigrants had to endure to come to America. So don't discontinue the ferry service and restrict access to the Immigration Station; if we don't know history, we're doomed to repeat it.

Please do not discontinue the direct ferry service between San Francisco and Angel Island. It is integral as a tangible reminder of the Chinese immigration experience. It honors past generations and educates current and future generations.

Please continue the ferry service from SF to Angel Island. I have used this line for over 40 years both as a classroom teacher in the SFUSD and as a parent and SF resident. It is an essential access point for furthering knowledge of our past and current problems with immigration. This is the moment to highlight and enhance such touch points to grow a more just society.

The ferry service from S.F. to Angel Island should not be discontinued. People who live outside Marin County also want to visit Angel Island for its important role in immigration history & for its unique natural history. i believe once the pandemic is under control, people will want to visit Angel Island again.

Please do not discontinue the ferry service from SF to Angel Island. It's a main method to visit the Island, which is home to the National Historic Landmark Immigration Station. It's critical to ensure future generations are have access and are educated about the history of the Asian American immigration experience at that site. I know Asian Americans from around the country visit the Immigration Station. There are also Beautiful trails and views there. It would be all around negative for SF to limit access.

Angel Island needs accessible and direct ferry service from San Francisco. Without it, visitation and ongoing preservation efforts of the Immigration Station, which is a National Historic Landmark, would be negatively impacted. This includes the Pacific Coast Immigration Center. Place-based education on immigration, detention and discriminatory policy is especially important in light of current events.

Please do not discontinue service from San Francisco to Angel Island. This will leave access to Angel Island essentially unavailable to those without cars. Angel Island should remain accessible to everyone.

Please do not discontinue ferry service between San Francisco and Angel Island. With discrimination against people of Chinese and Asianheritage on the rise, it is critical that we have more access, not less, to Angel Island so that we can study and learn from its past and ours. Thank you.

I urge you to continue ferry service from San Francisco to Angel Island. A city like San Francisco, which prides itself on cultural diversity and progressive thinking, should not cut off a primary means of access to our history and cultural heritage. Thank you.
