Abstract:

This project, an evaluation of the interrelationship between the San Francisco Vessel Traffic Service SFVTS and the maritime community of the San Francisco Bay area, is the third in a series of evaluations from the point of view of the users of the VTSs. Two previous evaluations were conducted on the Puget Sound VTS 1 and the Houston-Galveston VTS 2. The objectives of this project are to examine the interrelationship between the SFVTS and the Bay Area maritime community BAMC and to offer recommendations for the future of the SFVTS and its operation. This evaluation of the interrelationship between the SFVTS and the BAMC is based on a total of 59 face-to-face structured interviews and discussions with key members of the BAMC and immediate users of the SFVTS. The results of these interviews and discussions are presented in tabular and narrative forms.
