I sent an email to FasTrak last year asking the webmaster to add the smart, but they thought I wanted to add my license "smart". It got so confusing I gave up and chose UNKNOWN FORTWO.
Note that you can use your transponder in different vehicles, but the license should be registered on your account under that transponder ID.
Also, if you use the HOV lane during commute time, with two in the car, you should isolate the transponder (in the foil bag) to prevent paying for the toll in the carpool lanes. If you get stuck in a FasTrak lane with two during commute, you should stop and tell the toll taker you want a credit.
The Golden Gate bridge does not allow free passage for two-seater cars with two people.
I researched all this prior to getting the smart. I plan on saving an additional $1,200 in tolls each year by carpooling with two in the smart!
