All you need to do is set up the GoCarma app.

Note: For kids, and passengers without smartphones, please read this article.

Each day GoCarma enables tens of thousands of commuters to qualify for high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) toll discounts on Dallas-Fort Worth TEXpress Lanes.

For the vehicle to qualify for a 50% toll discount, there must be at least two people in the vehicle with the GoCarma app on their phone.

Therefore, to be verified in the vehicle, each passenger must:

  1. Sign up in the GoCarma app

  2. Add any vehicle you regularly travel in on Dallas-Fort Worth TEXpress Lanes

If you travel with kids, or if your passenger doesn't have a smartphone, simply request a free GoCarma Occupant Pass to detect them in your vehicle.

It’s a good idea for each person to open the app from time to time to make sure that their setup is ok. You should see “Setup OK” in a blue bar at the top of the home screen. Otherwise, you may be prompted to update some app permissions.

Then you’re all set! You don’t even need to have the app open - it will automatically activate when you travel in a TEXpress Lane during weekday peak periods.
