    Do you need a FasTrak tag/account to solo drive your stickered EV on I-580 and I-680 Express lanes?
    Thanks!

    Am I Toll-Exempt | Bay Area Express Lane

    I was just looking into this a couple days ago. It seems you do not need a tag/account on I-680 since you do not want it charging you anyways. However you EV must have a white or green sticker to use the express lane.

    It also seems you NEED a Fastrak tag/account to use the I-580 lane. A Flex tag to be exact.

    Either way those two links should answer any questions you have on the subject.

    Just get a fast track toll tag, set it to three+, stick it under your trunk parcel shelf and forget it.

    You need the Flex transponder. Just leave it set to 3 as SoccerMan notes. FWIW instead of mounting it under the parcel shelf (which I sometimes move/remove), I have mounted it in the center of the rear lift gate window at the bottom edge. It then is not in the line of sight from the inside rear view mirror.

    Perfect! I rarely use I-580 during commute hours but will get a FasTrak transponder just in case.
