Deadline looms for L.A. carpool plan

August 27, 2008 6:12:08 AM PDT
The deadline is looming for state lawmakers to approve a plan that would allow the shared use of carpool lanes on the 110 and 10 freeways.According to the L.A. Times, a bill must be passed by Sunday at midnight or the MTA could lose more than $200 million in federal funds.

That money would go toward toll plazas, road and rail improvements, and clean fuel buses.

If approved, lone motorists would pay a fee to use the carpool lanes. Vehicles carrying more than one person could still use the lanes free of charge.
