The Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District's board of directors approved the toll hike on Feb. 28 as the district faces a $142 million deficit over the next five years.
The FasTrak rate went up from $5 to $6, and the pay-by-plate rate increased from $6 to $7. The carpool rate, which requires FasTrak, went up from $3 to $4.
Tolls will gradually rise by 25 cents in July 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. By July 2018, the FasTrak rate will be $7 and pay-by-plate rate will be $8.
The toll hikes are estimated to raise $138 million for the district over the next five years.
