I-580 Express Lanes - Opening Early 2016

The I-580 Express Lanes are designated lanes in the Tri-Valley corridor - through Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore - that are toll-free for carpools, vanpools, motorcycles, buses and eligible clean-air vehicles as long as they carry a FasTrak® Flex toll tag set to 2 or 3+. Solo drivers can choose to pay a toll using a FasTrak® or FasTrak Flex toll tag to access the lanes for reliable travel times. 

Are they easy to use? Yes! The I-580 Express Lanes will look and feel similar to carpool lanes. You can enter and exit almost anywhere along the corridor, providing easy access to and from local exits. Please note: to access I-680 from the westbound I-580 express lane, exit the express lane before Hacienda.

When do they operate and how much do they cost to use? The I-580 Express Lanes will operate Monday - Friday 5 a.m. - 8 p.m. Outside of these hours, the lanes are open to all vehicles at no charge. Overhead signs will tell you the current toll for solo drivers.
Toll prices vary based on congestion and the distance you travel in the Express Lanes.

All I-580 Express Lane users must carry a FasTrak toll tag. Carpoolers and those eligible to use carpool lanes must have a new FasTrak Flex toll tag for toll-free travel. FasTrak Flex allows drivers to designate whether they are driving solo, or are a carpool with 2 or 3+ occupancy. Order your FasTrak Flex toll tag online now. Solo drivers can continue to use their existing FasTrak toll tag on the I-580 Express Lanes.
