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 means.

* Two-person carpools are charged a toll on the I-10 ExpressLanes Mon-Fri 5-9am and 4-7pm.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. The third sign indicates the entry point to the ExpressLanes and informs drivers that FasTrak is required to use the ExpressLanes.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Motorcycles do not need a FasTrak transponder to use the ExpressLanes.
  7. 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.
