  • So Cal Carpool lane update from Metro

    Micromanagement at it's finest from the carpool lane operator:
    Metro ExpressLanes is making changes to its Clean Air Vehicle Policy starting March 1, 2019:
    • Customers with a clean air vehicle (CAV) displaying a valid DMV-issued red or purple CAV decal are eligible for a 15% discount off of the posted rate on the I-10 and I-110 Metro ExpressLanes. To qualify, eligible CAV decal holders must first register for the discount on our website at
    • 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.
    • Other CAV vehicles (including those with yellow, green or white CAV decals) will not be eligible to receive any CAV discounts.
    As a reminder, all vehicles traveling on the I-10 or I-110 Metro ExpressLanes must properly mount a FasTrak transponder. Carpoolers must have a FasTrak Flex (switchable) transponder that is used to indicate the number of occupants in the vehicle. Eligible carpoolers with a FasTrak Flex set to the proper position can continue using the Metro ExpressLanes toll-free.
