Using the ExpressLanes
DRIVERS on the I-110 and I-10 with a FasTrak®
transponder now have the choice to pay
a toll to use the ExpressLanes.
CARPOOLS AND VANPOOLS can use
the ExpressLanes toll-free
with a FasTrak® Flex transponder.
The I-110 and I-10 Metro ExpressLanes regulations will be enforced
by the California Highway Patrol using visual and electronic
Vehicles displaying a DMV issued white or green
Clean Air Vehicle decal can use the ExpressLanes toll-free with a
switchable FasTrak Flex set to 3 (3+ person carpool).
- Prior to starting your trip, you will indicate
the number of occupants in your vehicle by moving
the switch on the transponder to the appropriate setting (1, 2,
3+). Note: 2-person carpools are charged a toll on the I-10
ExpressLanes Mon-Fri 5-9am and 4-7pm.
- The I-110 and I-10 Metro ExpressLanes will operate 24/7
and will be separated from the general purpose lanes by double
solid white lines. The fine for crossing the double solid white
lines is an approximate minimum of $491.
- 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 will be indicated by a
single dashed white line.
- Tolls on the ExpressLanes are based on the current
congestion level and the length of your trip. Approximately 1/4
mile away from the entrance to the ExpressLanes, the
second overhead electronic sign displays two
1) The current toll from this entrance to
the next major exit; and
2) the current toll from this
entrance to the end of the ExpressLanes.
Your rate is
locked in at the beginning of your trip.
- The third sign indicates the entry point to the
ExpressLanes and informs drivers that FasTrak is required to use
- 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
transponder, 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.
