I know there are a lot of conversations happening around this. The intent, to keep carpool lanes moving at 45+ MPH, appears to be working. I am torn. I see bigger challenges that need to be solved, but when I was driving 405 and carpooling, it really didn’t save much time. So.. I am curious what you all think?

Drivers are saving an average of 15-25 minutes in express toll lanes
BELLEVUE – More drivers are using the new Interstate 405 express toll lanes, according to data collected from last week’s commute.
“Every day is different, and each driver has a different experience,” said Washington State Department of Transportation Assistant Secretary Craig Stone. “Overall, last week’s I-405 travel times have been lower than they were a year ago.”
