Posted on Tue, Dec. 31, 2002 Clean Air Vehicles get free
ride on Golden Gate By the Mercury News
Drivers who own Clean Air Vehicles will get an added bonus
in the new year -- a free commute across the Golden Gate
Starting today, cars that are fully electric or use natural
gas will avoid the toll of $5 cash or $4 with FasTrak to
cross the Golden Gate Bridge. The savings could add up to
$1,000 a year for frequent bridge commuters.
Currently only motorcycles and carpoolers can take advantage
of toll-free passage on the bridge.
The Clean Air Vehicle program began in 1999 to provide
vehicles with low tailpipe and evaporative emission access
to carpool lanes when only one driver is in the car. The
following year a program was adopted granting toll-free
passage to Clean Air Vehicles during commute hours on all
state-owned toll bridges.
