Bridge toll goes up July 1; take BART to avoid the toll increase

Bay Bridge tolls are going up again.

Starting July 1, drivers will pay $6 to cross the Bay Bridge during peak commute hours and $5 on the weekends.Carpools will now pay a $2.50 toll instead of crossing for free.

With higher bridge tolls, some drivers will re-think their commute and take advantage of BART's fast, reliable, environmentally friendly Transbay service. 

Use the BART QuickPlanner to get schedules, fares and even a carbon calculator to see how much CO2 you’re saving by taking BART.

If you already ride BART, tell your friends and co-workers about the BART option; encourage them to take a pledge to try BART and they could win free BART tickets. They can enter at bart.gov/pledge.
