Golden Gate Bridge Toll to Cost Nearly $10 By 2023

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A trip across the Golden Gate Bridge is about to get more expensive.

The Press Democrat reports Golden Gate Bridge officials voted Friday to raise tolls up to $9.75 by 2023.

The first increase will come in July when a trip from the North Bay from San Francisco will rise from $7 to $7.35.

The toll hikes are expected to raise an estimated $100 million over five years and help transportation officials buy another ferry boat to meet growing demand and add service between Larkspur and San Francisco.

According to the California Department of Transportation, the 1.7-mile bridge sees a daily average of between 112,000 and 119,000 motorists each day.
