Commuters can now figure out how much it will cost to take the Interstate-75 South Metro Express lanes.

The toll rates for the lanes go from 10 cents to 90 cents per mile. The minimum toll charge for a ride in the lanes is 50 cents.

The State Road and Tollway Authority’s board of directors approved the amounts yesterday.

The 12 miles of new lanes will debut in late January and reach from McDonough Road to Stockbridge Highway.

They will be blocked off from the regular lanes and head into Atlanta during morning rush hour and out of the city for the evening commute.

The Peach Pass is needed for these lanes.
