  •  Golden Gate Bridge Authority is planning something (1+ / 0-)

    similar next year. The booths will remain because they are part and parcel of the initial design of the bridge (which is on the National Register of Historic Places) but tolls will be collected electronically. At least the authority intends to reassign the toll-takers to other jobs instead of giving them the boot but it's still a rather unfortunate choice.

    Also given the amount of out-of-state, rental-car driven tourists who cross the bridge daily, I'd suspect toll collection will actually take a serious hit. After all, who's gonna pay attention to a bill for $6 (or more; the toll will undoubtedly increase) from an out-of-state agency?
