Bay Area committee recommends peak/off-peak tolls at Bay Bridge, new toll on carpools to raise $160m/yr on $475mBy Peter Samuel on December 15, 2009
Bay Area Toll Authority's (BATA) oversight committee after public hearings and discussion is recommending to the board that different peak, off-peak and weekend toll rates for autos be introduced at their big Bay Bridge and flat rate toll increases be adopted at the other six bridges. Truck tolls would more than double. And for the first time in the Bay Area tolls would be collected from carpool vehicles (mostly 3 or more occupants.)
Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) have given Sirit a $6.6m contract for 410k more California standard Title 21 transponders at an average price of $16.10 each. They are interoperable throughout the state under the FasTrak brandname.
