  • Bay Area Bridge Toll Increase

    Does anyone have information on how the new bridge toll increase here in the SF Bay Area will affect white sticker commuters?

    Will we have to pay the $2.50 toll for carpools or the $5 like the hybrids?

    Re: Bay Area Bridge Toll Increase

    The Bay Area Toll Authority committee met last Wednesday to discuss the issue. According to the Power Point presentation posted with their meeting agenda, hybrids would also pay the reduced toll available to carpools. See the linked PPT file, on slide 19:

    "Eligible vehicles charged at reduced rate:
    Autos meeting occupancy requirements
    Motorcycles and Hybrid vehicles (with decal)"

    Here's the proposed schedule for adoption and implementation of the proposed toll increase:

    January 13, 2010 BATA Oversight Committee Meeting, Toll Increase Proposed Adoption and Implementation Schedule

    January 27, 2010 BATA Meeting Authority action on toll increase
