Carpools (New Charges July 1, 2010)
Starting July 1, 2010, Carpools cross for half price ($3.00) on the Golden Gate Bridge under certain conditions:
Which Lanes: You cannot use the FasTrak lanes and get the $3.00 fare, since the computer can't count the passengers in your car. You must go through a lane with a toll taker, who will punch in a code so your FasTrak is only charged $3.00.
Who is eligible: Vehicles with three or more persons, and Motorcycles.
What you have to have: You must have a FasTrak transponder. You cannot pay $3 in cash to the toll taker and get the carpool rate -- paying cash will cost you the usual $6.00.
When it's $3.00: 5:00 AM to 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM weekdays, except on New Year's Day, Presidents' Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
What if I drive a two-seater? You have to pay the usual toll.
What if I'm driving a truck? If it has two axles and four tires, you qualify. If it has more than two axles or if you have rear axle dual tires you can't qualify as a carpool.
What if I have one of these white clean air stickers? You get to cross the Bridge as if you were a carpool and get the discount.
What if I have one of these yellow clean air stickers? You have to pay a normal toll unless you have three or more people in your vehicle..
