How to Install Your Sticker Transponder On Your Car

  1. Clean and dry the inner surface of the windshield where the sticker transponder will be placed.
  2. Carefully peel the backing from the sticker. Avoid touching the adhesive and keep the sticker as flat as possible and avoid bending it as it may break the antennae.
  3. Place the sticker transponder in the lower left-hand corner or lower right-hand corner of the windshield. Or, place it behind the rearview mirror. (Consider visual aesthetics from inside and outside of the vehicle when choosing the location.)
  4. Do not move or adjust a sticker transponder once it has been installed. It will break and become unusable.
  5. Make sure all vehicle license plates are registered to your account.

Metalized Windshields

Switchable FasTrak Transponder

Switchable FasTrak transponders (sometimes called FasTrak Flex®) have a small black switch that can be moved to indicate the number of occupants in the vehicle. It is the driver's responsibility to indicate the number of occupants in the vehicle by moving the switch to the appropriate setting (1, 2, 3+). This should be done prior to starting each trip.

Toll-free travel for qualifying carpools and other eligible vehicles is often only available to drivers who have a switchable FasTrak transponder; drivers with standard FasTrak transponders pay the full toll regardless of the number of occupants in the vehicle.
