Express Lanes START℠

Express Lanes START℠ provides adults with lower incomes living in the Bay Area the opportunity to drive in the Interstate 880 Express Lanes at discounted toll rates.

Express Lanes START is a trial program to make the I-880 Express Lanes more affordable for Bay Area residents who earn a low income. Drivers who meet eligibility requirements can apply and – if approved – get at least 50% off all tolled trips in the I-880 Express Lanes using FasTrak®. Since this is a trial program, the discount does not apply to other Bay Area Express Lanes.
