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.
Am I eligible for Express Lanes START?
Residents of the nine-county Bay Area with a gross annual household income of up to 200% of the federal poverty level may be eligible. Visit ExpressLanesSTART.org for more details and to apply for Express Lanes START.
Express Lanes START is an 18-month trial program that will be evaluated before MTC decides on the program’s future.
