Connecting San Francisco and Oakland, is one of the area's landmarks and one of the most recognizable bridges in the world. With its two double-deck spans, the total length of the bridge is 7.18 km (4.46 mi). The west span connects San Francisco and Yerba Buena Island, while the east span connects the island with Oakland. The west span went through a substantial seismic retrofit project, and the whole east span had to be replaced. The current east span is among the widest bridges on earth. The bridge provides excellent views of the city skyline. This is a toll bridge, and the fee depends on the day of the week and time of day.

San Francisco Bay Bridge Reviews
San Francisco has to be one of my favorite cities in the whole world ,it's almost like a world of its own I love crossing the Bay Bridge. feeling that nice cool breeze it's almost like the breeze has water in it it's awesome. everyone should experience going to San Francisco there's so much to do. lots of great restaurants and the people out there are just so nice. The only downside is parking and the traffic. But the Fantastic scenery and weather make up for it completely.
Not horribly busy, and our toll taker was very nice. On the top part o bridge when going into the city, so great views. If you have Fast trac lots of lanes, so easy to keep going.
