If you have recently traveled in a Dallas-Fort Worth TEXpress Lane, you may notice that the home screen of the GoCarma app updates to display a card confirming your HOV status.
Soon after you complete a trip in a TEXpress Lane, it's a good idea to open the app to check that your trip was confirmed as HOV. If it's not, please allow some hours and check again as it can take some time to update.
What Does "HOV" Mean?
This HOV status means that GoCarma confirmed you traveled as a high-occupancy vehicle (at least 2 GoCarma users in the vehicle) during your most recent weekday peak period trip in a TEXpress Lane.
It does not necessarily mean you have received an HOV toll discount, as you may not have traveled as HOV at the time of every toll transaction during this period.
On the card, you will see the date and day the card is referring to, whether it's referring to an AM or PM peak period, and the TEXpress corridor you were most recently confirmed in. You may also see the license plate of the specific vehicle you traveled in.
