More HOV & toll lanes coming to North Texas; meeting tonight in Euless

Hovlane@gdickson

Last week, we wrote quite a bit about the region's plans to integrate the high-occupancy vehicle lanes that have been used by carpoolers for two decades with the newer managed toll lanes that are being built on many freeways. For residents who want to learn more about the conversion of carpool lanes to toll lanes, the North Central Texas Council of Governments will host a public meeting tonight in Euless. The public will be briefed on several regional transportation issues, including HOV/toll lanes, and will be encouraged to ask questions.

Here are the particulars:

Where: Euless Public Library, 201 N. Ector Drive, Euless

When: 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17

More: www.nctcog.org

Also, here's a more in-depth story I did about a year ago on the future of HOV lanes.

With the idea that Time=Money, HOV lanes are actually very efficient. Moreover, as more cars move to the toll /HOV lane, congestion decreases in the normal lanes making everyone's commute shorter, on average. There are even websites such as us.amovens.com that facilitate the carpooling process and get drivers paid to participate. In theory, you could make a profit AND have a few extra minutes to yourself.
