I think they are going to start next week sometime, I am pretty sure it will be announced on the radio... Traffic moves so much better without tolls!

F that noise, people are getting on my westpark tollway cause they don't have to pay. it started taking so long to get to work, that i took I-10 today. before i leave the house now i always check houston transtar to see how the roads are. today it took me 2 hours to get home from the med center to katy. i wanted to kill myself

has anyone heard whether or not bikes have to pay tolls for the I-10 hov?

I am ready to have the freeloaders off my tollway. It sucks ....1.5-2 hours to go 20 miles. I took the feeder and it was faster going through all the lights!

I hear you. It took me 10 minutes to get from work in downtown to my place in the Heights today! Usually it takes around 6 minutes but the light at Heights & Washington is all jacked up... ugh!
