About I-85 Express Lanes
The I-85 Express Lanes are High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes open for use by Peach Pass account holders in single- and double-occupant vehicles for a fee, and transit, three- or more person carpools, motorcycles, emergency vehicles, and Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFV) with the proper AFV license plate (does not include hybrid vehicles) toll-free.
Based on the number of vehicles using the Express Lanes, tolls will vary to keep the lanes free-flowing, even during the height of rush hour. Toll rates are displayed at each Express Lanes entry point on changeable message signs, allowing drivers to choose whether entering the Express Lanes makes sense for them at any given time. However, at the ending point of the Express Lane single occupant vehicles must exit the Express Lanes and immediately merge into the general purpose lanes. Access to the I-85 Express Lanes does not warrant access to the existing HOV lanes.
The Express Lanes are available 24 hours per day, seven days per week. A combination of tolling system enforcement and Department of Public Safety visual enforcement ensures that only registered vehicles with a Peach Pass use the Express Lanes and that vehicles enter and exit the Express Lanes in the proper areas. The maximum fine for an I-85 Express Lane violation is $25, plus the toll amount. However, motorists could also receive an additional traffic citation of up to $150 by law enforcement if they are pulled over for an occupancy violation (less than three people in the vehicle designed as non-toll when using the I-85 Express Lanes).
