TOLL BRIDGES & PARKING
All Bay Area Toll Bridges
A FasTrak toll tag pays tolls electronically on all eight toll bridges in the San Francisco Bay Area. It gives a $1 discount on the Golden Gate Bridge.
How FasTrak works
||FasTrak Toll Tag
A properly mounted toll tag is detected.
An antenna detects the toll tag which beeps as you drive through. FasTrak electronically checks your account.
||Account Status Display
The display shows one of the following:
Valid FasTrak - your account paid the toll
Account Low or Low Balance - you should increase your account's prepaid balance
Call FasTrak or Pay Toll - your account needs more funds to pay the required amount using FasTrak.
Cameras take pictures of the vehicle license plates as they pass through. In case a toll tag is not detected, the pictures are used to identify your vehicle and charge your account. They are also used to identify vehicles which cross without paying the toll as violators.
Bridge Toll Collection Point
Carpools Get Discounts
Carpools, vanpools, motorcycles and eligible clean air vehicles (CAV) can receive a discounted toll. Use the carpool lane with a FasTrak toll tag.
The Bay Bridge Toll Plaza's Bus Only/Carpool Lane
A carpool with a FasTrak toll tag may use this bypass lane during the posted carpool hours. However, at all other times this lane is for buses only and any other vehicle using it may incur a violation.
Multiple Bridge Commuter Discount
FasTrak users: If you make two commute-period trips on State-owned bridges in one day, you’ll get a discount on your second toll – 50 cents on a full toll or 25 cents on a carpool toll.
Only 2 axle vehicles are eligible.
Must use the same toll tag or same vehicle license plate for both tolls.
Must pay tolls with a Bay Area FasTrak account.
