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.
