The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) operates the Bay Area’s seven state-run toll bridges. Together, they make up an important network for vehicle traffic across the Bay.
The Bay Area’s seven state-owned toll bridges form a transportation network, allowing residents to move across the Bay to home, work and to points of interest. They are the backbone of vehicular transportation around the Bay Area.

The 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake spurred the seismic retrofit of all seven state-owned Bay Area toll bridges. Half of every $6 regular toll pays for this program.
