actually, at present no ferry connection. The current south terminal is across the street from the SanRafael bus station complex. The extension to the Larkspur frerry is being built.
And, then, there is the question of either tracks to Richmond/El Cerrito or across the GG Bridge. In the latter case, BART originally wanted to buildd a 'lower deck' rail crossing. Marin County folks were apoplectic and found a consultant who wrote a report claiming the bridge wasn't strong enough. However, a history of the GG Bridge explicitly states it was engineered to carry NWP (former SP subsidiary) heavyweights. Doing the math on how much lighter BART's current fleet is, I claim they could use the bridge easily. I am not likely to live long enough to see this happen, but I certainly believe it should, much as I want tracks over the Verrazano.
