    I just got my transponder and it's good to know they redesigned it so it's about a 3rd of the regular square shaped one. It's a rectangle now.

    I did some reading on their site and I think you should also take this into consideration if you have more than two people in the car with the fastrak transponder set to two or more people, it's a free ride. Without a transponder in the car, you'll have to pay even with two or more people.

    None of the bridges in Bay area need the physical transponder in car. The new 580 express lane requires the driver to have the physical flex transponder in the car, even for an electric car.

    The white prime plus with Tustin dealer plate and HOV sticker? I test drove it but didn't buy it. Glad to know it finds owner.
    I heard many car comes with sticker applied by dealer without license plate I thought it's common. Maybe just in region where dealer are diligent to compete business.

    I put mine on the black part. Less conspicuous and ugly there.

    I have a feeling mine will be going in the black part too. Can't wait to get my plates to order the HOV stickers, I don't believe my dealer requested them already.

    As long as it is visible and in general in the designated area, I cannot image there being a problem with locating it in a more aesthetically pleasing place. I no longer have a daily commute that uses the decals, so I am dragging my feet actually installing them, since my wife doesn't like how they look.

    Whatever happened to that California law that was going to extend the HOV decals beyond Jan 1, 2019? One of the aspects of the proposal was that the extension would depend on the model year, and different color decals would be issued to reflect the expiration year.

    The law has been passed. My green sticker is good for 4 years from date of purchase, but I don't know what they're going to do with the varied expiration dates for plug-ins.

    I believe it's SB-838 which has eliminated the statutory limit on Green Clean Air Vehicle stickers effective September 13, 2016. Try the following URL for more info: Eligible Vehicles - Single Occupant Carpool Lane Use Stickers
    Good luck!

    As I read it the statutory limit refers to the number of green stickers available not the length they will effective to. That seems to not have been extended.... yet!

    The expiration date(s) has been extended, I saw that mine was good til 2021; I'll have to go hunt it up again!

    .
    The bill, I believe is AB-1964; it extends the stickers life to 4 years from date of issuance.
    Here's the best URL so far:
    California - AB 1964 - 2016 - Transportation Legislature Bill High-occupancy vehicle lanes: vehicle exceptions. | Advanced Energy Legislation Tracker
    but the bill appears to have died in the Senate after the third reading. The problem is that Google doesn't necessarily return most up-to-date info on these bills, nor is info displayed chronologically. So Shylok Homes can get frustrated!

    @HPrimeAdvanced - damn I hope they extend it.. 2021 would be awesome.

    Just got my HOV sticker last Friday and even though I leave at 5:30 AM, it's awesome to drive by the slow spots on the 405 and see everyone jamming on their brakes (and thinking - hey that was me last week.. poor b*st*rds) .

    I hope you're right but the latest bill you've posted is the same one I've been following. Hopefully, there's some info the public isn't privy to yet as far as extending the program.

    I submitted my HOV app on 4/24 without my license plate info and I'm still checking daily for that check to be cashed. The DMV is so damn slow...
