Golden Gate Bridge Tolls To Increase Beginning Next Week

It’s going to cost more to cross the Golden Gate Bridge and ride the Golden Gate ferries and buses next week. Starting on July 1st, tolls are increasing by 35-cents. Ferry fares are rising from 25 to 50-cents one-way from Larkspur, Sausalito, and Tiburon. District bus commuters who pay higher fares from Sonoma County and northern Marin will get a break, but riders on shorter routes into San Francisco will see an increase. Bridge officials say the revenue is needed to cover rising operating and maintenance costs.
