A pilot program will soon launch as an effort to discourage people from using the Peach Pass "Express Lanes" on Interstate 85, reports the AJC. Since inception, the lanes have become so popular that the state finds it hard to keep traffic flowing, even when they jack up the fees for usage, making the entire premise of an express lane kind of moot. Rather than make the tolls astronomical, the state is hoping to get commuters out of their cars and into public transit with $2 day — up to $60 total — in toll credits for those who opt to take transit rather than drive.
