Golden Gate Bridge tolls and Golden Gate ferry and bus fares will increase Wednesday to fund bridge maintenance and maintain transit service, The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District announced Monday.
The bridge's FasTrak toll will increase from $7.35 to $7.70 and one-time tolls will increase from $8.20 to $8.40. Carpool rates will increase from $5.35 to $5.70.
The fare and toll increases are part of a five-year program the district approved last year to improve transportation infrastructure. The increased revenue will also help the district close an $87 million revenue gap that has opened since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bridge traffic is down by roughly 40 percent compared to pre-pandemic levels while bus and ferry ridership are down by 80 percent and 97 percent, respectively.
