SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Commuters traveling across San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge are paying an extra dollar in tolls.

Monday's commute will see tolls rise to $6 from $5 for many who drive across the bridge and pay with FasTrak. For those who pay by license plate, the toll will climb from $6 to $7.

The rates will then rise by 25 cents in July 2015 and by another quarter every year until July 2018.

The rates for carpoolers and people with disabilities will increase by the same rate as FasTrak.

The Board of Directors of the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District voted to increase rates in February.

The increase comes as the district is facing a $142 million shortfall over five years. The increase is expected to raise $138 million.
