Did they park in the new garage? 6,154 people from Vallejo to San Francisco at $20 apiece equates to $123,080.00 in parking fee for the hungry city of Vallejo. That's how much revenue was lost in one day.

$5 per day. It's $20/month.

And there weren't 6154 people leaving Vallejo, despite the report. there were 6154 total between SF and Vallejo - net is 3075 passengers for the entire day. There were only 8 runs that would have had people there before Noon. Each boat carries ~310 people. It's impossible for them to have moved 6154 people from Vallejo to SF.

take that ~3000 people, cut it by half (two minimum / car), and that is 1500 --$7500, not $125K

A guy I met at the parade was from Fairfield and went to the waterfront to take the ferry, he said they had an extra ferry running but not enough people selling tickets. He told me the line was so long and not moving he drove to pleasant hill and took BART.
No matter what business you're running .... Not being able to take the money and forcing them to spend it elsewhere is a recipe for failure.

Yes indeed. Just like when too many guys are lined up in front of me and I can't service all of them I lose money.

Or like when you worked your way up Uncle Bucks leg and blew that fat encrusted cocktail weenier like the seasoned pro that you are, all to get the rights to drive that cool white van. I bet you dig having the van while you're handing out free candy at the school, don't ya?

Did you get arrested in NY for that kind of behavior? Did you get the charges overturned on a technicality? Did you leave the East Coast because of it?
