Toll cost with transponder
Located in San Francisco Bay Area California, the San Mateo Hayward Bridge is a major bridge facility. The San Mateo Hayward Bridge is one of the busiest in California.
San Mateo-Hayward Bridge connects two cities – Foster City and Hayward. It carries the San Francisco Bay along State Route 92. The bridge significantly improved commutes on SR-92 between San Mateo and Alameda counties, especially during peak evening hours. Tolls on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge are paid in the westbound direction on the eastern side of the facility.
San Mateo-Hayward Bridge – overview
San Mateo Bridge (or, officially the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge) is the longest bridge in the San Francisco Bay and the longest bridge in all of California. It is 7 miles (11.3 km) long. This is made up of a western highrise section (1.9 miles or 3.1 km) and an eastern trestle section (5.1 miles or 8.2 km). The bridge now has six lanes and is part of State Route 92. It links the city of Hayward in the East Bay to Foster City on the San Francisco Peninsula. The San Mateo Bridge is owned by the state of California and maintained by the California Department of Transportation. It carries over 90 thousand cars and other vehicles on a typical day.
The bridge was opened for traffic in 1967 to serve residents and tourists who want to enjoy traveling across the great San Francisco Bay area. The span of the facility won two prizes a year later: an ASCE Award for Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement and an American Institute of Steel Construction long-span prize bridge award. The bridge was widened in 2003 – the project was funded as part of the Bay Area Transit Authority’s Regional Measure 1 program. The aim was to match the configuration of the high-rise portion of the bridge and the facility was widened from four to six lanes.

Love the app, use it every week
Saved our day when we were on a trip and had to take a toll road on our way home
This App allows us worry-free travel on TOLL ROADS...Automatically replenishing our account, notifying us of Automatically paying our access to the Toll Road. Great relief from expensive citations for not paying while driving. Thank you. P.S. A receipt is always sent to us.
I find this app a good way to track my tolls and manage my budget. Works great for this.
The app saves me a ton extra minutes every day. Took the worry out of paying our tolls. Thank you🌴
Better than a toll tag, I use one app on both vehicles and will link my wife's car next week. Easy to travel to other states, since you're registered with all toll authorities they cover.
Been going back to the office a little so been driving more. This is great.
