Recommended to use the ferry to go to Sausalito both cheap and quick and so easy to get tickets this gives a good view of both Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge and great views of both leaving San Francisco and of Sausalito

This is the civilized ... and convenient ... commute. The only negative is that since the Larkspur ferry became so popular, the ferry parking lot fills up early.

I never had a problem. Check to see if the ferry you are taking is running. We drove in for a 10: am ferry and mechanical problems had canceled that one trip.
