From Old Peachtree Road in Gwinnett to Chamblee Tucker Road in DeKalb, commuters, even solo drivers, can enter the lanes to leave the traffic jam on the rest of the highway. But they will have to pay a fee, which will rise and fall with congestion.Drivers must have a Peach Pass to use the toll lanes. Peach Passes can be acquired from the website peachpass.com .
