Congestion Charging

I do not think that any US city has a London style Congestion Charge. London charges £8 ($12.25) on any non-holiday that you drive into the city centre between 7am and 6pm. San Francisco has taken the first step in that direction. The Bay Bridge, the busiest of the bridges that cross the bay into the city now has variable toll pricing. The standard toll for crossing bridges in the area is now $5. The Bay Bridge charges $6 for a crossing during the weekday rush hour, dropping to $4 at other times during the week and charging the standard $5 over the weekend.
