BAY AREA – Tolls at seven state-owned toll bridges in the Bay Area, including the Richmond-San Rafael bridge, are set to increase on July 1, most of them up to $5 per car.

The Bay Bridge toll will be priced according to day of week and time of day, increasing to $6 per auto during weekday commute hours and dropping to $4 during off-peak weekday hours. Weekends will be priced at $5 per car.

Carpools, motorcycles and inherently low-emissions vehicles, currently free during commute hours, will have to pay a reduced toll during weekday peak periods. Fees for these will be collected exclusively through the FasTrack system. Tolls for large trucks and other multi-axle vehicles will also increase, with fee hikes phased in over three years for those on long-term contracts.
