The Georgia Express Lanes are dynamically priced, meaning as demand for use of the lanes increases, the toll amount rises to ensure that you experience more reliable trip times.
The minimum toll rate for all Georgia Express Lanes is $0.10 per mile. You can also expect toll rates above the $0.10 per mile minimum to vary based on travel conditions at each express lane facility rather than a predetermined max rate. During periods of very low demand, per mile toll rates on an express lane facility may be replaced with a fixed toll of $0.50 per trip, regardless of the length of the trip.
You can see the posted toll amount before you enter, allowing you to decide whether you want to use the lanes. Tolls are collected electronically with no toll booths requiring you to slow down or stop.
Toll rates are displayed at each lane entry point on changeable message signs. The top rate displayed on the sign is the fee from the upcoming entry point to the next exit, while the bottom rate is the fee from that entry point to the last Express Lane exit. When you exit between entry points, the toll rate will be between the two displayed rates. Once you enter, your toll rate does not change.
In the case of a traffic incident in or near the Georgia Express Lanes, toll rate signs also may display one of the following messages:
- High Occupancy Toll (HOT)3+ ONLY – I-85 Express Lanes restricted to carpools of 3 or more. Sign displayed to safely divert traffic out of the Express Lane and around a blockage in the roadway up ahead.
- OPEN TO ALL – Georgia Express Lane open to all vehicles with less than 6 wheels at no charge, including those without a Peach Pass. Sign displayed to safely divert traffic around a blockage in one or more of the general-purpose lanes.
I have one Peach Pass transponder and two vehicles. Can I use my transponder for both vehicles?
No. Transponders are not transferable. You can only use the Peach Pass in the vehicle to which it is registered on your account. However, you can have up to 10 transponders associated with one account.
