I-680 Sunol Express Lanes
Located along a 14-mile stretch of southbound I-680 from State Route 84 south of Pleasanton to State Route 237 in Milpitas, the I-680 Sunol Southbound Express Lane has been in operation since September 2010.
A northbound express lane along this same corridor broke ground in April 2018 and construction is underway.

WHO CAN TRAVEL IN THE I-680 EXPRESS LANE?
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO USE THE LANE?
The express lane is always free for carpoolers. For solo drivers, the overhead sign states the toll amount to travel to next zone (top line) and the price to travel to the end of the express lane (bottom line). Toll prices can change every 15 minutes.
Customers are locked-in to a toll rate controlled by the overhead sign prior to location of entry. The locked-in rate does not change if the price goes up or down while the customer is still in the express lane.
SET IT BUT DON’T FORGET IT
If your flex tag is detected in different positions during your express lane trip, you will be charged based on the lowest occupancy that is detected.
For example, switching the Flex tag setting from 1 to 2 after you have entered the express lane could still result in a toll charge for the entire distance travelled.
We recommend the customer check the tag position before each time you travel in the express lane.
