It may seem much more recent, but the last time the toll for crossing the Golden Gate Bridge went up was back in 2008. So here we are six years later, and they’re talking about raising that cost again. So we’re talking about it, too.
A series of three public meetings about the proposed options for increasing tolls on the Golden Gate Bridge (see table below) will be held this week, as follows:
Marin County: Tuesday, January 21, 5 pm to 7 pm, The Whistlestop, Caboose Meeting Room, 930 Tamalpais Avenue, San Rafael.
Sonoma County: Wednesday, January 22, 6 pm to 8 pm, Petaluma Community Center, Activity Room, 320 N. McDowell Boulevard, Petaluma.
City and County of San Francisco: Thursday, January 23, 4 pm to 6 pm, Fort Mason Center, The Gatehouse, 2 Marina Boulevard, San Francisco.
The above Open House sessions will be followed by a formal Public Hearing on the increase options, to be held on February 12, at 7 pm, in the San Rafael City Council Chambers, 1400 Fifth Avenue, in San Rafael.
