Tri-Valley Express Lanes Opened in Early 2016

The I-580 Express Lanes will improve the commute along the Tri-Valley corridor through Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore. They are designated lanes 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 toll tag to access the lanes for reliable travel times. Learn more.
