SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Tolls on the San Francisco Bay Area's seven state-owned bridges will go up by $1 starting on Jan. 1.

The Mercury News reports that rush-hour tolls on the Bay Bridge will increase to $7 from $6, and the toll during off-commute hours will go up to $5.

The Bay Area Toll Authority says the price will rise to $6 at the Antioch, Benicia-Martinez, Carquinez, Dumbarton, Richmond-San Rafael and San Mateo-Hayward bridges. The current toll is $5.

The increases are the result of a regional measure passed by voters in June.

The hikes are the first on the bridges since 2010. Tolls will increase again by $1 in January 2022 and January 2025.

The Golden Gate Bridge is independently owned and operated and not impacted by the measure passing.
