Useful information

Pedestrian guidelines

There are restrictions on who can cross the Golden Gate Bridge sidewalk and when. Pedestrians can only use the East Sidewalk (the side facing the city). This closes at 6:30 pm during the winter and at 9 pm during the summer months. Skateboards and roller skates are not permitted. No animals are allowed to cross the Golden Gate Bridge sidewalk, apart from service dogs.

The Bridge on Two Wheels

The East and West Sidewalks are open to cyclists at different times of day; the Golden Gate Bridge website will give you the most up-to-date information about opening hours. When sharing the East Sidewalk with pedestrians, cyclists should always give way. If you want to cycle across the bridge at night after the security barrier has come down, simply press the buzzer and it will be lifted remotely.

Tolls in One Direction

To drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, you will have to pay a toll. The journey is free in the opposite direction.
