Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is currently managing numerous active capital projects in various stages of delivery to improve safety and efficiency on highways throughout Alameda County, including Express Lanes. Express lanes are specially designated highway lanes that let you enjoy more reliable travel as you bypass traffic congestion. FasTrak® allows solo drivers to pay a toll to drive in express lanes. Carpools can travel toll free in all express lanes, but need the FasTrak Flex® toll tag to travel toll free in some Express Lanes. For detailed express lanes operational information, go to the Express Lanes Operations page. Carpools with 2 or more persons can travel toll free in all express lanes but need the FasTrak Flex toll tag to travel toll free in some express lanes.
