"Slugging" is very common in Houston these days, epecially from the park and rides on I-10 (Kingsland, Addicks) and 290 (Northwest Station). METRO doesn't condone the practice, but they're not exactly trying to put a stop to it, either, because it essentially results in more capacity for their park and ride system.

On any given afternoon, you'll see plenty of folks with signs reading "221" or "214" plying the streets of downtown Houston, looking for bodies that allow them to use the HOV lane.

If you're commuting along 249, METRO's Seton Lake Park and Ride, located just south of the intersection of 249 and the Sam Houston Tollway, might be of use to you. Unfortunately, METRO has no park and ride facilities along 249 north of the tollway, even though there is almost certainly huge latent demand for P&R services along that corridor.
