SF officials discuss charging toll to dissuade non-residents from driving onto Treasure Island

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Treasure Island is being transformed into San Francisco's newest community and the city is hoping to dissuade non-residents from driving there.

A virtual meeting will take place Wednesday to talk about a proposed toll for private cars driving onto the island.

The rate will be anywhere from $2.50 to $10.

Residents of the island will not have to pay, and there will be discounts for low-income folks.

The city is adding 8,000 new homes on the former Naval base by 2024.
