Golden Gate Bridge parking restrictions in effect for holidays

Personal vehicle parking will be restricted at the Golden Gate Bridge on holidays and holiday weekends between Saturday and Jan. 1, the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District said.

The closures intended to reduce traffic congestion begin at 11 a.m. and typically continue until 5 p.m. Visitors to the Bridge are urged to use bike, tour bus, public transit, corporate shuttle, taxi or rideshare transportation.

Personal vehicles will not be allowed to park at the Welcome Center at the south end parking lot or the Caltrans Vista Point at the north end parking lot. Tour buses will be allowed to park at the lots on each end of the bridge.

Taxis and rideshare vehicles will be allowed to pick up and drop off passengers at the Welcome Center only. They will not be allowed to enter Vista Point.

Parking is available at the overflow lots along Merchant Avenue, Lincoln Boulevard and in the Presidio.

The Welcome Center will be closed Christmas Day, Dec. 25, but will remain open daily through Jan. 1.

Electronic signs will notify drivers of the parking lot closures in advance of the bridge itself leading up to the Vista Point exit.
