Golden Gate Bridge Toll To Raise July 3rd

The historic bridge will take a high-tech leap forward when it becomes the first California span to replace all human toll takers with an electronic system that ends the need for motorists to stop and pay cash. Toll takers will collect money for the last time early Wednesday before the toll booths are closed for good. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg)

Sonoma County commuters, be advised: Bridge tolls on the Golden Gate Bridge are going up.  Starting next Monday, July 3rd, the toll will go up at least 25 cents, from seven dollars and 50 cents to seven-75 for two-axle cars.  People who buy FasTrak passes will pay six-75 per crossing.  The bridge agency’s board of directors approved the toll hike nearly three and-a-half years ago to address a long-running budget deficit.
