State Road and Tollway Authority
The State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) is a state-level, independent Authority created by the Georgia General Assembly to operate tolled transportation facilities within the State and act as Georgia’s transportation financing arm.
Tracing its history back to 1953, SRTA has enabled user fees to be directed to important mobility links, including the original Sidney Lanier Bridge over the Brunswick River, the F.J. Torres Causeway “gateway” to the St. Simons’ community, the GA 400 Extension, the I-85 Express Lanes, the I-75 South Metro Express Lanes, and future electronic toll lanes offering Metro Atlanta motorists a choice for more reliable travel times.
In 2017, SRTA combined with the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) to jointly provide the services of both state authorities. This includes management of the Xpress Commuter Coach Service, which provides workers with reliable, stress-free commutes to and from major employment centers in Downtown, Midtown, and Perimeter Center as well as the administration of the Atlanta region’s vanpool program.
SRTA manages the collection of tolls on Georgia’s Express Lanes System through the use of Peach Pass, the state’s all-electronic tolling technology
