SR 167 HOT Lanes

The SR 167 high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, opened in 2008, are high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes open to solo drivers who choose to pay a toll. Carpools of two or more, vanpools and buses use the lanes toll-free. Toll rates adjust to ensure traffic in the HOT lane is free flowing even when the regular lanes are congested. The SR 167 HOT lanes help keep traffic moving by providing a choice for a faster, more reliable trip when you need it most.

Toll Rates

Toll rates for HOT lanes range between 50 cents and $9. Rates are posted on roadside signs and you always pay the first toll rate you see when you enter the lanes, even if you see a different toll rate down the road. View current toll rates on the SR 167 HOT lanes.

Hours of Operation

The lanes are tolled from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week.
The HOT Lanes are open to all drivers free of charge after 7 p.m. During this time, signs will say "OPEN."

How do solo drivers pay a toll?

Solo drivers who choose to use the HOT lanes must install a Good To Go! pass in their vehicle and have an active Good To Go! account.

Which pass should I choose?

If you:

  • always drive alone - sticker pass.
  • sometimes carpool and sometimes drive alone - Flex Pass.
  • always carpool - no pass needed (Flex Pass is optional).
  • ride a motorcycle – no pass needed (motorcycle pass is optional)

Call 1-866-936-8246 for help ordering a pass.

Get a free pass upgrade

Some SR 167 carpoolers may have older Good To Go! pass models. These still work on SR 167, but will not work on the I-405 express toll lanes.

If you have an older switchable pass (with a pull down on/off switch), you can call 1-866-936-8246 to request a free upgrade to a new Flex Pass.

Future plans

As the SR 167 HOT lanes are still considered a pilot project, WSDOT will request the project be converted to permanent status in the 2018 state Legislative session.
