Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge crosses San Francisco Bay on Highway 101 and connects San Francisco and Marin counties. Its roadway consists of a total of six roadway lanes. The number of roadway lanes dedicated to a given direction of traffic flow can be modified several times throughout the day to accommodate shifting traffic patterns. The bridge also accommodates bicycles and pedestrians on a separated pathway.


If drivers have a working FasTrak toll tag in their vehicle, they will receive a discounted toll rate. Otherwise, the image will be associated to an active FasTrak account and the toll automatically deducted from the customer's account. FasTrak also offers a short term payment account, called a One Time Payment, which gives you the option to pay 2 days before or within 2 days after your crossing using your vehicle license plate information. If you don't have a FasTrak account, drivers can wait for a toll bill, called an invoice, to be mailed to the vehicle's registered owner for payment of the toll with no additional fees.
