Golden Gate Bridge Tolls Set to Increase

Golden Gate Bridge Tolls Set to Increase

Drivers are expected to soon pay more to cross the Golden Gate Bridge.

The bridge's directors are set to consider several options to raise tolls at a meeting on Friday.

The bridge district is facing a projected $142 million shortfall over the next several years.

The proposed increases include a 75 cent increase to $5.75 in April for drivers who use the FasTrak electronic payment system and then another increase to $6 in July 2016.

Drivers who don't use FasTrak would see their tolls increase from $6 to $7 in April. Another option would increase tolls for non-FasTrak drivers to $8 starting in July 2016.
