  • "The CCP has been going on for a long time out here, and I am told there are similar opportunities for informal ridesharing in certain parts of the Washington DC area (where the practice is known as slugging) and taxi pooling from upper Manhattan down to Wall Street. Such transit arrangements work because for a small investment and risk, everyone gets something tangible and positive. In our CCP, the driver gets to go through the carpool lane onto the Bay Bridge (not only a much shorter time waiting in line but also free bridge toll) and the riders get a quick and free(!) ride to a central destination."
