Richmond - San Rafael Bridge

Crossing the San Francisco Bay on Interstate 580, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge carries vehicular traffic and connects Contra Costa and Marin counties.


The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) collects tolls on the seven state-owned toll bridges in the Bay Area. On these bridges, drivers can pay their tolls with either FasTrak or cash. With FasTrak, you can use special designated lanes to get you to the toll plaza faster and drive through without having to stop to pay the toll collector. Tolls are automatically deducted from your prepaid account. To pay with cash, drivers wait in line for a toll booth collector to take their payment.
