The San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, on Interstate 80, crosses the San Francisco Bay and connects San Francisco and Alameda counties It is made up of two bridge segments: a skyway structure/single anchored suspension bridge between Oakland and Yerba Buena Island for vehicles with a protected bicycle and pedestrian pathway, and a suspension span from the island to San Francisco for vehicular traffic.
The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) collects tolls on the seven state-owned toll bridges in the Bay Area. As of Saturday, March 21, no cash will be collected on any of these bridges. You can use either FasTrak to pay your toll, or FasTrak will mail you a bill for just the amount of your toll. 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. For more information about FasTrak, visit bayareafastrak.org or call 877-BAY-TOLL.
