Say goodbye to 2018 and say hello to higher toll prices in the Bay Area in 2019.
Changes go into effect on Jan. 1, 2019, to the tolls at seven of the bridges around the region.
San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge
Regular tolls will climb to $7 on weekdays from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
During weekday off-peak hours from midnight to 5 a.m., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and from 7 p.m. to midnight, the tolls will increase to $5.
On Saturdays and Sundays, Bay Bridge tolls will be $6.
Antioch, Benicia-Martinez, Carquinez, Dumbarton, Richmond-San Rafael and San Mateo-Hayward Bridges
The tolls will rise from $5 to $6 for two-axle cars, trucks and motorcycles.
Vehicles With Three or More Axles
For all bridges, tolls will rise to $16 for three axles, $21 for four-axles, $26 for five axles, $31 for six axles, and $36 for combinations with seven or more axles.
Motorcycles, carpools and qualifying clean-air vehicles crossing state-owned toll bridges during peak-period will pay $3, an increase from $2.50. To qualify for this discount, drivers must use FasTrak to pay for the tolls.
Two-axle vehicles with FasTrak that cross more than one bridges during commute hours are also eligible a 50-cent discount.
