Golden Gate Bridge Five-Year Toll Program Proposal

The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District (District) is considering a new multi-year toll program and is holding a series of public meetings in January and February 2019 to get public input on the proposed toll rate options. The District Board of Directors (Board) will likely make a decision on a preferred option this spring and any adopted toll program would go into effect on July 1, 2019.

The Board approved the proposed toll rate options at its December 2018 meeting as part of the District's regular five-year financial planning process. This new multi-year proposal follows the conclusion of a previous five-year toll program in July 2018.

Options under consideration would raise between $75 and $100 million dollars over the next five years. The District projects it will need to raise $75 million over the next five years to match the rising cost of goods and services. This assumes the District maintains current operations and levels of service across the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Transit, and Golden Gate Ferry systems. Any revenue raised beyond the $75 million would be used to improve transit services, especially on the popular Larkspur to San Francisco ferry service.
