  • Abstract:
    The Texas Transportation Institute (TTI), a part of The Texas A&M University

    System, is conducting an assessment of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) projects

    located either on freeways or in separate rights-of-way in North America. The

    three-year research study is being funded by the Urban Mass Transportation

    Administration through the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The

    research study includes an overall assessment of the status of HOV projects on

    freeways and in separate rights-of-way in North America, an examination of

    procedures for conducting before-and-after evaluations of HOV facilities, and

    detailed examinations of specific case study HOV projects.

    One of the major elements of this assessment is the detailed examination of

    selected HOV facilities in six case study sites. High-occupany vehicle

    facilities in Houston, Texas; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota; Orange County,

    California; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Seattle, Washington; and Washington, D.C./

    northern Virginia represent the selected case study sites. An intent of the

    case study analysis is to provide an examination of the history, institutional

    arrangements, operating characteristics, utilization rates, and impact of

    selected HOV projects in different parts of the country.

    This report contains the analysis of the history and institutional arrangements

    associated with HOV projects in the six case study sites. The report provides

    a summary of the elements common to the different projects, and a detailed

    description of the background and institutional arrangements of each case study.
