    Austin, Texas will have its first “managed lanes” in 2015. The expressway lanes will be tolled at a variable rate that ensures smooth flow of traffic. Private vehicles will pay the toll, but buses, emergency vehicles, and military vehicles will travel for free. There will be no maximum toll rate.
