Driving in the Bay Area can be such a hassle. Especially when there’s so much traffic while driving on any of the seven state-run bridges. Which is why cash tolls are coming to an end, and will eventually be turned into FasTrak lanes ONLY.

The Golden Gate Bridge was the first to go cashless and has been working fine for the past 6 years and is just another reason why the Metropolitan Transportation Commission approved a $4 million contract to begin the process of going cashless for all Bay Bridges.

Although having less traffic is the expected outcome, there are about 200 toll taker employees that will be effected by this.

This process may take up to 5 years, but The Carquinez Bridge will mostly likely be the first to be strictly FasTrak.
