If that means that the carpools and buses are driving 10 miles per hour slower than they do today, well, those carpools and buses aren't their customers. They're not paying tolls. So who cares?

Maybe then a part of the solution is to give the carpoolers and some 'bargaining clout' by charging them. I.e., Not exempting the carpoolers from the toll (they already get a break just by doubling up). This would encentivize those carpoolers who aren't in a hurry to use the regular lanes ... and thereby leave the HOT free for those who are ... As is the intent of these lanes. (Buses are few enough that it's probably not worth the trouble of trying to incentivie them. Although, in theory, it also holds that a tourist bus might be less inclined to spend the extra bucks for the HOT lanes than would say a commuter bus.)
