VANCOUVER – Starting later this month you will have to pay a little more to cross the Golden Ears Bridge.
TransLink says as of July 15 tolls will go up 1.5 per cent to match the rate of inflation. The tolls, which pay for building, operating and maintaining the bridge, will increase from five to 15 cents, depending on the type of vehicle.

The bridge sees a shortfall of 35 to 40 million dollars a year.
The toll adjustments are as follows:
