Using the ExpressLanes
Prior to starting your trip, indicate the number
of occupants in your vehicle by moving the switch on the
FasTrak® Flex to the appropriate setting (1, 2, 3+).
CARPOOLS AND VANPOOLS can use the ExpressLanes toll-free
with a FasTrak Flex.*
SOLO DRIVERS on the I-10 and I-110 with a FasTrak
Flex will pay a toll to use the ExpressLanes.
The I-110 and I-10 Metro ExpressLanes regulations will be enforced
by the California Highway Patrol using visual and electronic
* Two-person carpools are charged a toll on the I-10
ExpressLanes Mon-Fri 5-9am and 4-7pm.
- The first sign will be a FASTRAK ONLY
ExpressLanes sign approximately 1/2 mile away from the entrance
to signify the distance remaining to enter the ExpressLanes.
Entry to and exit from the ExpressLanes are indicated by a single
dashed white line.
- The second overhead electronic sign
displays two toll amounts:
1) current toll from this
entrance to the next major exit; and
2) current toll
from this entrance to the end of the ExpressLanes.
- The third sign indicates the entry point
to the ExpressLanes and informs drivers that FasTrak is required
to use the ExpressLanes.
- The fourth sign marks the start of the
ExpressLanes toll segment and is the final reminder to the
driver that FasTrak is required beyond this point.
- Once you are beyond the ExpressLanes entry/exit point,
where the dashed white line ends and the double solid white lines
begin again, an overhead antenna will read the
FasTrak, and for solo drivers who choose to use the
ExpressLanes, the correct toll amount will be automatically
deducted from your FasTrak account based upon the toll amounts
displayed to you on the second sign. Those vehicles that are
carpooling and meet the minimum occupancy requirements will not
have a toll deducted from their account.
- Motorcycles do not need a FasTrak
transponder to use the ExpressLanes.
- The I-10 and I-110 Metro ExpressLanes operate 24/7 and
are separated from the general purpose lanes by double
solid white lines. The fine for crossing the double solid white
lines is a minimum of $491.
