To save the earth and to encourage many people to take car pooling, I would like to suggest an hour extension to HOV line in the evening from 3 to 7 pm. As everyone know, there are many people donít get ride while they usually come after 5:30 pm. The drivers usually decide not to pick up riders during that time, because they think by the time the arrive at the HOV gate; they will be able to drive alone. Therefore, I really suggest extending the HOV time until 7 pm. Thank you and I hope this suggestion will be heard.

I agree that the HOV hours need to be extended because it is so hard to catch a ride at 5:30 or later. I just don't think it will be possible without a lot of effort. It seems that the HOV will not be used too much in the future anyway with Hot Lanes coming and people can just pay to get on. I do not agree with Hot Lanes, but it has already been argued. In the mean time, I really wish the hours were extended.

I completely agree. Traffic is still heavy enough at 6:30 that it would really help. Many people don't get out of the office till 5:30 and at that point there is no real option but the bus.
