Georgia Express Lanes are optional toll lanes that run alongside existing interstates in some of the most congested corridors around metro Atlanta. These lanes provide a choice for drivers to pay a toll to bypass congestion when desired, offer a clear path for transit operators and add an alternative to the roads that exist today. Express Lanes are intended to provide a mobility choice and more reliable travel times in peak periods for motorists and bus patrons. The result is a network of lanes that provide more reliable and predictable trip times. All Georgia Express Lanes rely on variable-price tolling to maintain free-flowing travel even during peak travel times. Express lanes are already open on I-85, but more corridors are in development and in different configurations.
