Increases do not include the Golden Gate Bridge as those tolls are set by the Golden Gate Transit District.

The increase is part of a two-phase increase approved in 2010. Although the first phase of toll hike went into effect in July 2010 for most vehicles, the increase for multi-axle vehicles was delayed for one year to allow commercial trucking firms to incorporate the higher tolls into new contracts with shippers.
