Have you driven on I-580 through the 
Tri-Valley lately? If so, you have no doubt seen the express lane construction rapidly progressing throughout this 14-mile corridor. 
Express lanes are specially-designated carpool/high-occupancy vehicle lanes that give solo drivers the choice to pay a toll to use the lane, when there is excess capacity. Carpoolers and all vehicles eligible to access HOV lanes will use the lanes at no cost, provided they carry a new  FasTrak Flex toll tag, and solo drivers will have the choice to pay a fee to use the lanes by using their FasTrak or FasTrak Flex toll tag.

Single-use bag ban expanding to retail?
Scott Raty
Stopwaste.org, Alameda County's waste reduction agency, is soliciting feedback from retail establishments throughout Alameda County regarding potential expansion of the single-use bag ban. You may recall previous efforts by Stopwaste.org and others that led to changes for grocery stores regarding single-use bags, and introduced limitations on plastic take-out containers, beverage containers, etc.
 Stopwaste.org wants to hear from all retailers about expanding the requirements, first by taking a short survey, and second by attending one of their upcoming meetings to learn more and sharing your take on what it may mean to you and your business.
One of their meetings will take place
in Pleasanton on Monday, October 19 in the Library Community Meeting Room from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.  If you are a retailer and want to have input on the subject - here's a great opportunity.
