Although always taking a back seat to its rival to the west, the Bay Bridge has plenty to admire. Approaching the Ferry Terminal after visiting Sausalito, I thoroughly loved the view of the Bay Bridge. Take some time to enjoy it!

A beautiful bridge, no doubt about it. Heavy traffic almost any time of day. What really upset us as tourists, was the fact that the toll lanes were a mess. We were driving in a lane that said Cash & Fastrak, only to find when...More

One-Time Payments can be made up to 30 days before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge or within 48 hours after and can be made using a credit card or cash/check/money order. They are collected in the west bound lane only.
