Who rode in today?

This may sound like a stupid question, but is the Katy tollway free when on my motorcycle? It has an HOV only lane sign above the tolls, but the other signs before toll booth say HOV 2+ free...

On the Katy Managed Lanes, single drivers pay a toll that varies depending on demand, while mass-transit, motorcycle and HOV2+ users ride free during HOV hours. All other times, the managed lanes function as a regular tollway.

so I guess if it was during HOV hours you're good

Yap, Katy HOV is great for riding to WWH after work, I get entries on my EZtag account for going through the HOV lanes, but they show $0.00.

It's much better than sweating in the morning and sweating in the evening.

Enjoy that chilly weather while it lasts, won't be much longer till the Houston heat is here.

The chilly morning ride may be a function of riding a bike with no fairing. Though today wasn't as bad as it was some other days.
