The Bay Bridge (which is actually two different bridges) and Golden Gate Bridge are two different bridges in the Bay Area. This video is the San Francisco side of the Bay Bridge.

The video shows the process step by step, including the right distinction between the two Golden Gate Bridg and Brooklyn Bridge. Thanks Ian, it is truly helpful. I read the What a Trip Travels from SF blog. Please stop by
