Bridge Crossings Data at Your Fingertips
MTC’s Monthly Transportation Statistics are regularly updated with figures that paint a comprehensive picture of transportation usage in the Bay Area.
With reports on crossings for all seven of the Bay Area’s state-owned bridges, as well as weekday BART trips and newly-added Clipper® card data, MTC website visitors can see and analyze mobility trends across different transportation modes.
For example, one-way crossings for the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge have been generally on the rise since the COVID-19 shelter-in-place orders in March 2020. While there have been a few small dips in the number of crossings, the figures largely have held at upwards of 3.5 million crossings per day (around 92% of pre-pandemic traffic) since March 2021.
Similarly, the figures for the other six state-owned bridges (the Antioch, Benicia-Martinez, Carquinez, Dumbarton, Richmond-San Rafael and San Mateo-Hayward bridges) have been totaling over 5.5 million crossings per day on average (75% of pre-pandemic levels) since January 2021.
The figures on the Monthly Transportation Statistics web page typically are updated early in the month, when data become available.
