There are no fees to open or to maintain a FasTrak account. Think of your FasTrak account as a little bank account for tolls. Your account must always have a balance, and tolls will be automatically deducted from your balance each time a toll is collected.
You can open your FasTrak account with a credit card, cash or check.
If you open an account with a valid credit card, FasTrak collects an initial prepaid balance of $25 per toll tag. Your account will automatically be replenished as needed. This is the easiest way to ensure your balance is maintained. FasTrak will also waive the security deposit for up to 3 toll tags on your account. If your account has more than 3 tags, FasTrak will charge a $20 refundable security deposit for each additional toll tag.
If you open an account using cash or check, FasTrak collects an initial prepaid balance of $50 per toll tag plus a $20 security deposit per toll tag. You are responsible for adding more money to your account when the balance gets low.
If you close your account, FasTrak refunds the deposit to you when you return the toll tag in good condition. FasTrak also refunds any remaining balance on your account if you close your account.
