We are halfway through 2021 and the Port of Redwood City would like to thank our community for your continued support. We want to recognize Assemblymember Kevin Mullin for his commitment towards the future ferry service at the Port.

Our environmental program is a natural progression in reaching our strategic goals, and I look forward to continuing our efforts in the second half of the year.
