  1. Build an six lane elevated HO/T lane road over the green line and use revenue from that to fund free green line service. Also add two free lanes each way to the additional road.

  2. The Expresslanes has done NOTHING to reduce the traffic congestion on the freeway, in fact the traffic is getting much worse and slow when I use the 910/950 daily. Please do your job to enforce driver must pay and use and ticket those cheaters who don’t pay to use and cutting off bus. Require all drivers to pay when driving Expresslanes, no exception period! Increase the toll pricings since it is basically so inexpensive to drive on it. If you don’t want to pay the expensive tolls, take the Silver Line or other commuter buses instead that runs frequently to/from downtown area, not to mention the Silver Line runs 24/7. Please focus on your bus and rail network instead of wasting money on projects that does not solve the traffic congestion. Expresslanes drivers are particularly rude and impolite to transit vehicles.

  4. The 105 has been a disaster since Judge Pregerson’s consent decree. By the time he got through with redesigning the freeway it was 20 years late, had three thru-lanes in each direction (instead of six), half the number of on-ramps and off-ramps, a train that no one wanted running down the middle etc. Then someone named the 110/105 interchange after him to commemorate his work. I’m assuming that the consent decree is still in place to some degree because we could just add a fourth (free) thru-lane over a couple of weekends by realigning the current lanes without any construction. Sneaky Caltrans engineers designed and built the freeway with room for a fourth lane in silent protest. A 20% capacity increase within the existing structure without any construction would seem like a no-brainer . . .

  5. Please completely eliminate, not waive, the fees on the transponders for less frequent users.

    • They kind of did that a few months back. The transponders have been replaced with a sticker that goes on the inside the windshield.

      I have mine on, but I haven’t used it yet.

      • Do those have the 2-1-3 switch on them? I want to be able to use it on the I-10 and the I-110. The monthly fees for infrequent users is wrong. It has been waived, but not ended. People should not be charged for using the carpool lanes like the used to. Encouraging HOV’s is what it should be about.
