Good to Go wants to know.. Do you have your new Flex Pass for the 405? Cause that's a fun freeway to crawl on. It sounds like they might have this whole tolling the 405 bit figured out by Sept. I'm not holding my breath. But just in case, here's the way I understand it-- if you want to drive in the HOV lane EVER on the 405 you're going to need a Flex Pass. It's not the same pass you use for the 520 already, but the new Flex pass works for both highways. And since this is part of my after-school carpool mayhem, I have just purchased one for $15. If I have more than 2 (or 3 depending on WHEN) people in my car, I can HOV lane for free. Because I can remember to manually slide some little bar on my Flexpass while driving, verbally doing homework w/whining kids in back seat while answering a phone call and scarfing down a protein bar. No problem. Got it. Thanks D.O.T. Can't wait to see how driving improves for little old people like my mom too. Hold on to your seat-belts, people.
