Carpool and Save with

Metro ExpressLanes FasTrak

A Metro ExpressLanes FasTrak account allows you to declare the number of people in a vehicle, enabling HOV/carpools discounts and toll-free trips on the I-10 and I-110 Metro ExpressLanes.

Prior to starting a trip, indicate the number of persons in your vehicle by moving the switch on the FasTrak Flex to the appropriate setting (1, 2, 3+).

Drivers who use ExpressLanes FasTrak without a FastTRak transponder or regular account will receive a "Pay as You Go Notice of Toll Evasion Violation" in the mail. This allows for use of the lanes, but a higher toll payment will be required.
