Bay Area drivers may lose their carpool stickers soon! Carpool lanes are getting more and more crowded and something needs to be done.
Starting January 1st, 2019, drivers who have a hybrid, zero emission or alternative fuel vehicle will need a red sticker to be in the carpool lane if they are driving alone.
The new law is causing some confusion because anyone who recieved their stickers before 2017 will be forced out of the program for good. Anyone who got the sticker after 2017 can re-apply for four more years of carpool driving.
Another critical note: if you are among the lucky drivers who got your white or green sticker in 2017 or 2018, you need to apply for a new red sticker as soon as possible in order to use the carpool lane come New Years Day.
