Blue & Gold positions to take over ferry runs to Angel Island from local operator

The local owner and operator of the Tiburon-to-Angel Island ferry declined to submit a competitive bid to continue providing service under a 20-year contract with the state, citing the long-term contract’s “ruinous” terms, which has left the provider of San Francisco’s service to the island with the only proposal to operate the Tiburon run. “It would be financially irresponsible,” Angel-Island Tiburon Ferry Co. owner Capt. Maggie McDonogh said in an interview just hours before the extended deadline of 2 p.m. Aug. 24. Blue & Gold Fleet President Patrick Murphy confirmed later that day his company had submitted the proposal. (Deirdre McCrohan photo)
