Golden Gate Bridge District transit fares increasing today 

July 1 marks the first day of increased transit fares on the Golden Gate Bridge District’s ferry and bus fleets.

The bridge district, facing a five-year projected shortfall of $132 million, implemented the 5 percent increase to help balance its budgets.

With the fare hike, it now costs passengers $8.25 to travel one way on bridge district ferries from Sausalito and Larkspur to San Francisco. One-way bus service from the Golden Gate Bridge District’s plaza to downtown San Francisco will go up to $3.65.

The transit fare increases occur on the same day as the bridge’s carpool toll. Previously, multiperson vehicles crossed the bridge for free, but starting today, carpoolers will now pay $3 to cross the span.
