Alcatraz’s current ferry terminal may underwhelm many, but that is in line to change.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Tuesday a term sheet introduced by Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor Aaron Peskin, the National Park Service — which oversees Alcatraz — and the Port of San Francisco for a continued ferry service to the former prison from the current embarkation location area between Piers 31 and 33.

The 30-year agreement with two 10-year options includes an upgrade to the pier structures themselves and there would be a new cafe in the Pier 31 bulkhead, a retail and visitor contact station in the Pier 33 bulkhead and an additional third ferry berth at Pier 31 ½.
