Express Lanes use tolling and technology to keep traffic moving for carpoolers, bus riders and solo drivers alike. In advance of opening new express lanes on Interstate 880 in Alameda County in the summer of 2020, MTC's Bay Area Infrastructure Financing Authority (BAIFA) affiliate must adopt rules for how tolling will work. BAIFA is proposing to amend its existing Toll Facility Ordinance to set tolling rules for the new I-880 Express Lanes and to update tolling rules for the existing Interstate 680 Contra Costa Express Lanes.

After watching the video, submit comments through a brief online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TollOrdinance. The online format allows the public a convenient way to participate, view project information and provide input.

More information about the proposed Toll Facility Ordinance Amendment is available on MTC's website at http://mtc.ca.gov/whats-happening/news/mtc-openswindow-public-comment-amendments-express-lane-toll-policy.
