Bicyclists and pedestrians might have to pay a toll to cross the Golden Gate Bridge starting in 2017, as the bridge district struggles to chip away at a $33 million deficit. On Monday, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District released a 45-point plan to keep itself solvent, part of which includes sidewalk fees.

Guests:

Denis Mulligan, general manager and CEO of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District

Leah Shahum, executive director of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition
