Ways to Open a License Plate Account

Whether your License Plate Account is tied to a credit card or CASH/Check/Money Order, once your account is opened, it can be easily monitored and updated online at www.bayareafastrak.org.

Using a Credit Card

Going to the Bay Area FasTrak website and using a Credit Card is the easiest way to open a License Plate Account. You “pay as you go” with your credit card being charged after each crossing. Be sure to have the following information ready: license plate number(s); make, model, year, and state of registration for each vehicle listed on your account (maximum of 5 per account); and valid credit card number, expiration date, and security code.

Using Cash, Check, Money Order

If you prefer to use Cash/Check/Money Order, to open and fund a License Plate Account, you must maintain a small toll balance equivalent to one toll payment (e.g. $6 for a two-axle vehicle). You must remember to add funds to maintain the required prepaid balance to avoid getting a Toll Invoice and possible Toll Violation.

You can add funds in person using CASH ONLY at a Cash Payment Location or in person using Cash/Check/Money Order (bring your Account number with you!) at the Bay Area FasTrak Customer Service Center (effective June 17, 2014) at 62 First Street, San Francisco, CA 94105 (near the intersection of Market and First Streets). Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, Saturday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. You can also mail a Check or Money Order to Bay Area FasTrak Customer Service Center, P.O.
