The I-580 Express Lanes are toll-free for carpools, vanpools, motorcycles, buses and eligible clean-air vehicles (with a green or white sticker) as long as you 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 a more reliable trip. Getting your FasTrak toll tag and opening an account is easy at www.BayAreaFasTrak.org. The I-580 lanes feature near continuous access – so drivers can enter and exit at almost any point, providing easy access to and from most local exits. The express lanes operate Monday - Friday from 5am - 8pm (including holidays).
