    In Los Angeles the 10 and 110 fwy HOV lanes will be converted into toll lanes according to this article:

    MTA, feds reach $210 million deal on pay-as-you-go lanes - Pasadena Star-News

    One bit of good news is that:

    "MTA officials say that carpools currently eligible to use the HOV lanes will still be able to use the toll lanes for free. That would mean three-person carpools would be authorized to use the toll lanes on the 10 Freeway, and two-person carpools would be authorized to use the toll lanes on the 110 Freeway. Previously, the MTA's plans had not designated whether carpoolers would be charged or not."

    Is it 100% clear that our Prius with a HOV sticker qualifies?

    There is a difference between a car allowed in the carpool lanes and a car that is in fact carpooling.

    In Cali the HOV stickers expire in January 2011 anyway.
