    Can someone confirm and give explainations on my below true/false question for the NGV:


    NGV are exempt from all tolls(Bay bridge, Golden Gate, Richmond, etc)

    NGV are allowed on the car pool lanes at all times

    NGV can park free at all city parking meters

    NGV can park free in hotels

    Please feel free to add your own questions

    I think you can drive in the car pool lane anytime and avoid the bridge toll only during the posted commute hours. Sorry dont know anything about the free parking.

      FALSE, only during COMMUTE hours


      NGV are allowed on the car pool lanes at all times
      TRUE

      NGV can park free at all city parking meters
      FALSE, city-by-city, in San Jose must be a citizen of San Jose and have bought it from San Jose dealer, for instance. Not a big factor in NorCal for most of us

      NGV can park free in hotels
      Case-by-Case - up to the hotel

        Thanks Bundo

        I'll check with the Dept of traffic, regading the parking meters.

          One more note regarding the car pool lanes ... You still must display the
          "clean air vehicle" sticker ($8 - DMV), and to get one, your car must be
          on the list.

          NGVs get the silver stickers.

            You dont have to be from San Jose, just buy your car from a San Jose dealer. I bought from Stevens Creek Honda and was able to get the sticker for our car and we live in Santa Clara.

              The salesman said the Honda GX may use carpool lanes to cross bridges and use the commute lane.
