2018 Metro ExpressLanes Clean Air Vehicle Policy

(en Español)

As part of our ongoing commitment to deliver quality transportation choices, Metro ExpressLanes is updating its Clean Air Vehicle Policy.

Beginning March 1, 2019 clean air vehicles (CAV) displaying a DMV issued red or purple CAV decal can use the I-10 and I-110 Metro ExpressLanes and receive a 15% discount off of the posted rate.

Eligible carpools with a FasTrak Flex (switchable) transponder can use the Metro ExpressLanes toll-free. All clean air vehicles must set the switch on their FasTrak transponder to indicate the actual number of people in the vehicle for a given trip. CAVs are no longer allowed to use the 2 or 3+ transponder switch settings unless that many persons are present in the vehicle. Any CAVs incorrectly using the 2 or 3+ switch setting without that many occupants in the vehicle will be subject to CHP citation.

As a reminder, the I-10 and I-110 Metro ExpressLanes have different eligibility requirements:

On the I-10 Metro ExpressLanes: 

  • Vehicles with three or more occupants travel toll free at all hours.

Vehicles with two occupants will only pay a toll during peak hours, Monday-Friday from 5-9am and 4-7pm.

On the I-110 Metro ExpressLanes:

  • Vehicles with two or more occupants travel toll free at all hours.


Current customers of the agencies listed below:

  1. Are not required to open a new account with Metro ExpressLanes
  2. Must ONLY register their vehicle to qualify for the CAV discount.  Visit metro.net/expresslanes/cav to register your CAV
  3. Please make sure you have proof of decal on hand as further information may be needed during registration
  4. Non-Metro account holders are prohibited from using the registered transponder in any other vehicle when accessing the Metro ExpressLanes
