  1. I took the 10 west express lane today with a passenger, will I be fined for not having a transporter? The website says tolling will begin feb 23, 2013.

    • Hi Maria;

      No you won’t be fined. On the 23rd and thereafter you will need a FasTrak transponder to use the lanes.

  2. I got on the Expresslane today on Alameda onramp, thinking it was a carpool lane. Did not know about this Fastrak thing until I started seeing the lighted signs that shows the cost for HOV +2, HOVE+3, etc. Then I immediately switched to the free lanes before I got under those cameras. Will I be fined for not having a transponder anyway?

    • Hi John;

      It sounds like you switched lanes in time, but I can’t be sure. If you are cited and need to reach the ExpressLanes, phone 511 and say “ExpressLanes.”

    • You probably won’t get a violation from ExpressLanes but…you probably will get a citation from CHP or local police for driving without plates. Get some plates!

    • Hi Angel;

      Here’s the info from http://www.metroexpresslanes.net website, which you may find helpful if interested in using the lanes.

      Effective February 24, 2014, vehicles displaying a DMV issued White or Green Clean Air Vehicle Decal http://www.dmv.ca.gov/vr/decal.htm will be toll-free. All vehicles, including Clean Air Vehicles, are required to have a FasTrakĀ® transponder while traveling on the ExpressLanes. To ensure toll-free travel, set your transponder to switch position 3 (3+ person carpool) prior to starting your trip. Clean energy vehicles that do not have a Clean Air Vehicle Decal must drive with their transponder set according to their vehicle occupancy.
