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.
