Get FasTrak

Getting a FasTrak toll tag is the most versatile way to pay tolls in the Bay Area. With a toll tag, you can use Bay Area Express Lanes, pay bridge tolls and avoid the need to keep track of invoices. Carpools, clean air vehicles and motorcycles can also receive toll discounts when using a FasTrak toll tag in express lanes.

Types of FasTrak Toll Tags

FasTrak offers three types of toll tags:

Certain vehicles may have windshields or other features that block a windshield-mounted  toll tag from being read by tolling equipment. Find out if you need an exterior toll tag.

Each toll tag requires a $25 prepaid starting balance for tolls. FasTrak waives the $5 refundable security deposit for up to three tags per account if the account is set up for automatic replenishment.

Additional Toll Tags

You can order as many toll tags as you need when you open your FasTrak account. If you already have a valid FasTrak account, you can order additional toll tags by logging in to your account and selecting Tags & Vehicles or using our 24-hour automated phone line. You can also print and complete the Toll Tag Request Form [PDF] and send it to the FasTrak Customer Service Center. FasTrak requires a $5 security deposit for each toll tag above three per account.

Using Your New Toll Tag

Once your FasTrak account is open and you have your toll tag, follow the instructions for mounting the toll tag. It is illegal to hold up a toll tag with your hand while driving through a tollbooth. For more information, view the FasTrak Toll Tag Guide.

When properly mounted, your FasTrak toll tag allows you to pay tolls electronically at all FasTrak toll facilities [PDF] located on all Bay Area toll bridges and express lanes. FasTrak can also be used at some toll facilities in Southern California. View the locations FasTrak can be used.
