New privacy standards for FasTrak up for approval

A new set of guidelines to increase privacy and transparency standards for FasTrak users is likely to become official later this week.

Last week, a committee of the Bay Area Toll Authority, which manages operations on seven regional bridges, preliminarily approved the new standards, which are being prompted by a state law  set to go into effect Jan. 1.

On Wednesday, the full BATA Board of Directors will vote on final authorization of the FasTrak privacy standards.
