In February, the bridge's finance committee voted to raise tolls to $7. The FasTrak tolls will go up to $6. And, the toll will be $4 for people who carpool with a FasTrak.
Next July, tolls will start increasing annually by $0.25 a year until 2018.
The Golden Gate Bridge District would have faced a $142 million budget shortfall, over the next five years, if it didn't increase tolls.
