Golden Gate Bridge Officials Eyeing Toll Hike

Nov 13, 2013 1:40 PM

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — 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.

They 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.

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

A vote on any toll increase is not expected until early next year.
