Marin and Sonoma Counties Could See Longer Carpool Hours

carpool vehicles only sign two or more persons

Marin and Sonoma County commuters could see longer carpool hours on Highway 101 and the Golden Gate Bridge.  The aim would be to relieve traffic congestion.  The bridge district’s transportation committee will consider extending carpool hours when it meets today.  Officials need to decide whether having HOV lanes in operation for more hours will relieve congestion or add to it.  The meeting begins at 10 o’clock this morning at the district’s administrative office at the bridge toll plaza.
