Travelers on Dallas-Fort Worth area TEXpress lanes will soon have a simple, new way to qualify for high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) toll discounts. The GoCarma smartphone app has replaced Drive On TEXpress, ensuring that commuters will no longer need to activate their HOV status prior to each trip. On these roadways, drivers can either choose to pay a variable toll for the ability to travel at least 50 mph on the TEXpress Lanes, or they can use the general-purpose lanes for no additional charge.
GoCarma uses Bluetooth technology to automatically verify travelers in a carpool. As long as at least two people in the vehicle install the GoCarma app or have an occupant pass, they will not need to interact with the app after setup.
