BAY AREA, Calif. - The Bay Area seven toll bridges will temporarily not be accepting cash payment until further notice, says CalTrans. These bridges are the Antioch, Benicia-Martinez, Carquinez, Dumbarton, Richmond-San Rafael, San Francisco-Oakland Bay or San Mateo-Hayward bridges.
This is because all toll plazas will be unstaffed.
Representatives from CalTrans say they hope that the move minimizes the risk of exposure to the coronavirus.
Instead of drivers stopping at the toll booths, high-speed cameras will capture images of the license plates, and mail a toll invoice to the address that is registered with the DMV.
People who have FastPass will not be affected by this change.
