Welcome to Metro ExpressLanes — faster commutes and more <br />transportation choices. <br />Starting this Saturday, November 10, the carpool lanes on the 110 <br />Harbor Freeway — between the 91 freeway and Adams Boulevard in <br />downtown Los Angeles — will become Metro ExpressLanes. For the first <br />time, these lanes will be open to solo drivers for a toll. All drivers will <br />need a FasTrak® transponder to use the ExpressLanes. Carpools with two <br />or more people, vanpools and motorcycles with a FasTrak will continue <br />to travel toll-free. <br />And early next year, commuters on the 10 EI Monte Busway — between <br />the 605 freeway and Alameda Street in downtown Los Angeles —will also <br />have access to newly -converted ExpressLanes. <br />Our goal is to move more people — not more vehicles — by offering more <br />transportation choices. The program features and benefits include: <br />> Carpool Loyalty Program for carpools, vanpools and motorcycles <br />Sign up for a FasTrak account and receive your transponder. <br />> New EI Monte Station 0 <br />> Widened Adams Boulevard off -ramp and added a new lane on <br />Adams Boulevard <br />> New Patsaouras Plaza Station <br />> Toll credits for frequent transit riders <br />> New pedestrian bridge on Adams Boulevard providing direct <br />connection to the new Metro Expo Line 23rd/Flower Station <br />> Expanded platform and parking spaces at the Metrolink <br />Pomona Station <br />> Lighting and security improvements at the Harbor <br />Transitway Stations <br />> Nine miles of new lanes in each direction on the 10 freeway <br />between the 605 and 710 freeways <br />> New bus stops at the Manchester and Slauson Stations <br />> 10o new vanpools <br />> New bike lockers at Harbor Gateway Transit Center and new <br />bike hub at EI Monte Station <br />> LA Express Park`" parking systems <br />> More than 2,400 construction -related jobs and 50 operations <br />and maintenance jobs <br />> Reduced congestion and greenhouse gas emissions <br />2 metroexpresslanes.net <br />Mount the FasTrak transponder in your vehicle. <br />©Before each trip, set the FasTrak transponder to indicate <br />how many people are in your vehicle. <br />Enter the ExpressLanes at designated FasTrak entry points. <br />.
