Pedestrians and bicyclists can continue crossing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge for free under legislation Gov. Jerry Brown has signed.
The governor announced Wednesday that he signed AB40 by Democratic Assemblyman Phil Ting of San Francisco. It prohibits transportation agencies from charging sidewalk tolls on five state-owned bridges in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Ting introduced the measure to block Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District from imposing sidewalk fees to help close a budget deficit.
