Bay Area’s biggest companies behind effort to raise bridge tolls

A campaign is underway to raise tolls by $2-$3 on seven Bay Area bridges and, according to a San Francisco Chronicle report, some big names in the business world support those efforts:

Two of the biggest players pushing for the toll increase are the Silicon Valley Leadership Group — whose members include such tech titans as Genentech, Facebook and Google —and the Bay Area Council, which represents some of the region’s biggest employers, including Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, Pacific Gas and Electric Co. and UCSF.

 We could see a measure go up for voter approval as soon as 2018.
