How to drive the Express Lanes

Works with FasTrak®

The 405 Express Lanes will utilize electronic tolling to keep traffic flowing and there will be no cash payments or toll booths. FasTrak® transponders will be required for customers to use the express lanes.

If you have an existing transponder and active account from any toll agency in California, there’s nothing more needed to use the 405 Express Lanes.
