For Relief, Try Taking HOT Lanes
"Instead of adding high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes to highways, Poole says, metro Atlanta should construct a network of high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes. Buses and van pools would travel free and unimpeded on dedicated lanes funded in part by motorists willing to pay a variable price by electronic toll to escape the congestion. It's not pie-in-the-sky: HOT lanes are operating successfully with such congestion pricing in three urban areas in California and Texas, and are being considered elsewhere."
