Does your daily commute take your through the interchange of the Dolphin and Palmetto Expressways? Well, we're sorry for your daily dose of traffic torture, but there's some good news. The Florida Department of Transportation will pay you up to $75 a month to carpool. It's true!
The interchange is currently in the midst of a multi-year construction project that will last until 2015, and the project is causing a bit of a traffic headache. So, the FDOT wants to take as many single occupancy vehicles off the roads around the construction area as possible by providing incentives for carpooling.
Here's how much you could earn for carpooling each month:
- 2 or more carpoolers receive $25.00 a month per carpooler
- 3 or more carpoolers receive $50.00 a month per carpooler
- 4 or more carpoolers receive $75.00 a month per carpooler

The FDOT is also providing incentives to those who vanpool, and commuters who opt to carpool to the Palmetto Metrorail station.
