Get in the Express Lanes

Express lanes let you enjoy more reliable travel as you bypass traffic congestion. FasTrak allows drivers to pay a toll to drive in express lanes. Carpools, motorcycles, clean air vehicles (CAVs) and other toll-exempt vehicles can travel free or at a discount in all express lanes, but need a FasTrak Flex or FasTrak CAV toll tag. All FasTrak toll tags are accepted for toll payment on Bay Area toll bridges.

New Rules for Bay Area Express Lanes

Operating rules for some express lanes have changed. Make sure you know the rules of a specific express lane prior to using it.

Regarding CAVs

Eligible CAVs pay a toll when traveling as a solo driver in the I-880, I-680 Contra Costa, and SR-237 express lanes. If they use a FasTrak CAV toll tag, they will get a 50% discount. The FasTrak CAV toll tag can be used in all express lanes and at all toll bridges, too.

Carpool Changes

In the I-880 and SR-237 express lanes, carpool rules have changed:
2 Passengers = Pay half toll
3 Passengers = FREE
Use FasTrak Flex or FasTrak CAV and set it to match the number of people in the vehicle.

Choosing a Toll Tag

FasTrak Flex

The FasTrak Flex toll tag has a three-position switch to signal whether you are traveling alone or as a carpool. The FasTrak Flex toll tag works at all toll bridges and in all Bay Area express lanes, and it also can be used to pay for parking at San Francisco International Airport.

A FasTrak Flex toll tag is required for carpools, motorcyles, and eligible CAVs to travel toll free in the I-880, I-580, I-680 Contra Costa, and SR-237 express lanes.

If you do not use express lanes as a carpool, motorcycle, or eligible CAV, a standard FasTrak toll tag will serve all your needs. Most FasTrak users only need a standard FasTrak toll tag.

FasTrak CAV

The FasTrak CAV toll tag is only issued to eligible clean air vehicles and is required for discounted single-occupant CAV travel in the I-880, I-680 Contra Costa, and SR-237 express lanes.

The FasTrak CAV toll tag works at all toll bridges and in all Bay Area express lanes, and it also can be used to pay for parking at San Francisco International Airport.

When traveling as a single-occupant vehicle in the in the I-880, I-680 Contra Costa, or SR-237 express lanes, eligible CAVs will receive a 50% discount off the toll if they use a FasTrak CAV toll tag. It is the only toll tag that will communicate the correct discount to roadside equipment.
