Golden Gate Bridge Electronic Tolls Delayed By A Month

Golden Gate Bridge officials announced Friday they are delaying the process of moving to all-electronic tolls.

A test run of all electronic tolls will now begin in January, and the span will go without toll takers beginning in March.

Both changes represent a one-month delay.

Once the toll-takers are off the span only electronic payments will be accepted.

In anticipation, the bridge district is encouraging those who do not have FasTrak transponders to sign up for them. A pre-paid account, typically set up with a credit card, is required.

Tolls are deducted with each crossing and replenished. A statement is sent to motorists monthly documenting each crossing.
