Rohnert Park resident Tom O'Doul knows exactly how much a series of proposed toll increases on the Golden Gate Bridge would cost him.
The retired mailman crosses the landmark span 81 times a year to attend San Francisco Giants home games.
If bridge officials increase his $5 FasTrak toll to $7 by 2018, he'll be shelling out an extra $162 to see his favorite team.
"I don't like seeing anything go up," said O'Doul. "It seems like everything does."
O'Doul was among a handful of people who voiced opinions Wednesday night in Petaluma about the increases that could begin as soon as April.
Bridge officials have suggested four slightly different, phased-in toll hikes to raise between $93 million and $138 million to pay for construction projects, maintenance and operations.
Also, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District, which runs regional buses and ferries, is facing a $142 million, five-year budget shortfall.
"Everybody realizes the looming deficit requires some increase," said bridge director and Petaluma resident Brian Sobel.
Under one option, non-FasTrak tolls would increase to $6.50 in April and $7 in 2015. Other options would raise tolls in April to $7.
Under all four proposals, tolls would climb to $8 for non-FasTrak users by 2018.
