TCA Phasing Out Plastic Case FasTrak Toll Road Transponders, Replacing with Stickers
Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) is replacing current transponders with stickers and eliminating the monthly maintenance fee.

The sticker transponder can be used to pay tolls on every tolled bridge, lane and road in California - including the 91 Express Lanes and tolled lanes in LA. If you use the switchable transponder for the LA tolled lanes that give a discount for 2 or more drivers by adjusting the switch, you would want to keep that switchable transponder. If you had both the sticker transponder and the switchable transponder in your car at the same time, you would not be double charged. You would be billed the cheapest registered toll only once.
