Golden Gate Bridge tolls to ratchet up toward $10

0

The Golden Gate Bridge district’s board of directors voted Friday morning to raise tolls on the span to nearly $10 over the next five years to help close a $74 million budget shortfall.

The Board approved Option Five, expected to raise approximately $100 million over five years. Only one member of board voted against the toll hike, District spokeswoman Priya Clemens said.

The FasTrak toll will increase 35 cents a year to $8.50 over five years. The Pay-As-You-Go toll will increase 20 cents a year to $9 and invoice billing toll will increase 35 cents a year to $9.75 over five years. The toll increases start July 1.

The Pay-As-You-Go toll is for drivers who register their vehicle’s license plate with the district. Under invoice billing, a camera photographs a vehicle license plate and a bill is sent to the registered owner.
