Tolls on 7 Bay Area bridges to rise on New Year's day

Tolls on the seven, state-owned, Bay Area bridges will go up on Jan. 1, officials with the Bay Area Toll Authority said. 

Regular tolls for motorcycles, and two-axle cars and trucks will rise to $6 from $5 on the Antioch, Benicia-Martinez, Carquinez, Dumbarton, Richmond-San Rafael and San Mateo-Hayward bridges. 

Regular tolls on the Bay Bridge will go up to $7 from $6 on weekdays from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Weekday tolls on off-commute hours and weekend tolls will also rise by $1. 

The increases are the result of Senate Bill 595, which was confirmed through Regional Measure 3 in June. 

Officials with the toll authority said the hikes are the first on the bridges since 2010. Tolls will increase again by $1 on Jan. 1, 2022 and Jan. 1, 2025
