Carpooling in Austin? There’s an app for that
Andra Lim of the Austin American Statesman covers the launch of Carma Carpooling in Austin Texas. A public private partnership with TxDOT Texas Department of Transportation, CTRMA Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority and TTI Texas A&M Transportation Institute. The project was launched in February 2014 to increase passenger throughput along toll road 183A. The Carma App provides vehicle occupancy to the Texas TxTag toll billing system, and users receive rebates from 50% to 100% for HOV 3+ carpools.
