In November 2008, the Sunol Smart Carpool Lane Joint Powers Authority (JPA) – a predecessor to Alameda CTC – awarded ETC a project to implement and operate an Express Lane on Interstate I-680. In 2016 ETC extended the Express Lanes in Alameda county to include the I-580. This project opened to traffic in a fully dynamic mode in 2016.
These lanes were equipped with ETC’s All Electronic Tolling (AET) system. This system dynamically calculates tolls based on the traffic conditions and level of congestion.
Alameda CTC’s program highlights include the following:
- Dynamic pricing to maximize revenue and minimize congestion
- Multiple vehicle detection systems
- AVI FasTrak toll collection and congestion management
- Trip calculation
- CCTV system with California High Patrol (CHP) enforcement solutions
