San Francisco Bay Bridge Tours

45 reviews
San Francisco Bay Bridge
Though it doesn’t often get the attention of its famous sibling, the Golden Gate, the San Francisco Bay Bridge is spectacular in its own right. Once the largest and most expensive bridge of its time, in 75 years the Bay Bridge has proved critics wrong – the dream of connecting San Francisco to Oakland would not be stopped by anything. Logistics, cost, and politics couldn’t stop the expansion, and now the Bay Bridge has made history yet again my becoming the world’s largest self -anchored suspension bridge. Safely transporting the 280,000 automobiles that transverse its roads every day, the Bay Bridge connects San Francisco to Oakland, with a little stop at Yerba Buena Island along the way.

Practical Info

Heading westbound on the Bay Bridge will cost a toll: 2-axle vehicles pay $6 Monday-Friday carpool hours (5 a.m. – 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.), $4 non carpool hours, and $5 on Saturday and Sunday.

Admission: $6 Mon-Fri, $4 non carpool hours, $5 on Sat & Sun
