The GoCarma app enables you to qualify for high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) toll discounts. It does this by activating automatically whenever you travel in a TEXpress Lane during weekday peak periods. As long as there are at least 2 GoCarma users in the vehicle, you'll qualify as HOV.
How It Works
Get the GoCarma App
Get the GoCarma app for your iPhone or Android phone. It's a free app and it just takes a couple of minutes to sign up.
Once you sign up in the GoCarma app, and add your vehicle details, the app will activate when you travel in a TEXpress Lane during weekday peak periods. It uses a combination of GPS and Bluetooth to verify your HOV status.
As long as there are at least 2 GoCarma users in the vehicle, you’ll qualify for an HOV toll discount, which is confirmed on your NTTA toll bill.
Ensure Each Passenger Gets GoCarma
Each person in the car should have the GoCarma app on their phone too.
For those without a smartphone, such as children, you can request an Occupant Pass - a small Bluetooth device that can be carried in a pocket or bag when your child is in the vehicle.
Share Your Commute
The GoCarma app will automatically detect when you're traveling in a TEXpress Lane. You don't even need to open the app.
If 2 people in the car have set up the GoCarma app, your trip will be verified as HOV.
