Beat Traffic-Pay Freeway Toll

Posted: Updated:

Toll lanes are coming to Interstate 10 in the San Gabriel Valley. Beginning Saturday, you must have a transponder to drive in the new H.O.T lanes, which stands for High Occupancy Toll lanes.

It's free for carpools of three or more during rush hour. Metro says the new expresslanes should ease congestion for all commuters.

The price could be steep for solo drivers. During rush hour, traveling the entire 14 mile stretch between the 605 freeway and downtown L.A., could run almost $20.

Some drivers say they'd be willing to pay the price if it lessens their drive. . Metro estimates drivers could shave 30 minutes off their commute.
