Golden Gate Bridge officials want to know what Sonoma County drivers think about a toll increase planned for April.
Officials will present four options to raise tolls at a public hearing this evening in Petaluma. All options would raise tolls from the current $6 to $8 by 2018.
One option would increase tolls to $6.50 in April and $7 in 2015. Other options would raise tolls in April to $7. FasTrak rates would remain $1 less than pay-by-plate rates in most of the plans.
The plans would raise between $93 million and $138 million over five years to be used to projects such as painting on the south tower and a moveable median barrier.
The bridge district, which also operates a fleet of buses and ferries between Sonoma and Marin counties and San Francisco, faces a $142 million five-year shortfall.
The meeting is Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at the Petaluma Community Center, 320 North McDowell Blvd.
