FasTrak Throughout California

To date, five separate tolling agencies in California have distributed more than 2.5 million FasTrak transponders. It's important to get a transponder from the agency that operates the road, lane or bridge you will use most.  Each tolling agency has its own rules and minimum requirements.


Carpooling with FasTrak

FasTrak® is, by far, the easiest and preferred way to pay tolls on every tolled bridge, lane and road in California -- and, in some cases, it’s the only way to pay.
 
But, sometimes, qualifying carpools and other select vehicles are eligible to use the tolled bridges, lanes and roads for free or at a discounted rate.

While The Toll Roads now only issue switchable transponders, our customers with standard transponders can still use  them on our roads without worry.
 
Standard FasTrak transponders do not have a small black switch that can be moved to indicate the number of occupants in the vehicle.
 
Switchable FasTrak transponders (sometimes called FasTrak Flex®) do have a small black switch that can be moved to indicate the number of occupants in the vehicle. It is the driver's responsibility to indicate the number of occupants in the vehicle by moving the switch to the appropriate setting (1, 2, 3+). This should be done prior to starting each trip.
 
Toll-free travel for qualifying carpools and other eligible vehicles is often only available to drivers who have a switchable FasTrak transponder; drivers with standard FasTrak transponders pay the full toll regardless of the number of occupants in the vehicle.
