  • History: The SR 237/I-880 Express Connectors project opened to tolling operations on March 20, 2012. The California Transportation Foundation awarded the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority’s SR 237 express lanes as Project of the Year in May 2013.
  • How to Use: Express Lanes have limited entry and exit points. Driving from southbound on I-880:  enter the express lane in Milpitas, south of Dixon Landing Road.  As you continue westbound on SR 237 towards Mountain View the double white lines will end after the North First Street exit. Toll paying drivers have until Lawrence Expressway to exit the carpool lane. Traveling eastbound on SR 237: enter the express lane between North First Street and Zanker Road. The double white line striping begins just after Zanker Road and continues through northbound I-880 ending south of Dixon Landing Road in Milpitas.  Toll paying drivers have until Dixon Landing Road to exit the carpool lane. Express lanes operate the same hours as carpool lanes with an exception of an extended hour on westbound SR 237 from 5am until 10am. Eastbound commute hours will remain 5am-9am. The afternoon hours in both directions remain 3pm-7pm. During non-operational hours anyone can use express lanes. Drivers must always adhere, however,  to the limited entry and exits and may not cross the double solid white lines. The double white lines are in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week, regardless of carpool or express lane hours of operation.
  • Important: When you see HOV Only on the gantry sign over the carpool/express lane it means solo drivers may not use the HOV/express lane unless they are driving a motorcycle or clean air vehicle with  applicable decals. The operation is fully electronic. There are no tollbooths or traffic gates, so customers do not need to slow down or stop to make a toll payment.
  • When to Use: Express lanes provide a reliable travel option to Bay Area commuters and maximize usage and capacity in the lanes during commute hours.
