Project Overview

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 a FasTrak Flex toll tag set to 1, to access the lanes for reliable travel times. There are two eastbound express lanes and one westbound express lane on I-580.
