  • Abstract:
    High-occupancy vehicle (HOV) facilities represent one approach being used in many metropolitan areas today to respond to increasing traffic congestion, declining mobility levels, air quality and environmental concerns, and limited resources. HOV facilities, which can offer priority treatments to buses, vanpools, and carpools, focus on increasing the person-movement-rather than vehicle-movement-efficiency of a roadway or travel corridor. This document represents the fourth report prepared as part of a three-year assessment of HOV lane projects located either on freeways or in separate rights-of-way in North America. It provides an examination of the historical trends in use and impacts of six HOV project case studies and other HOV facilities in North America. High-occupancy vehicle facilities in Houston, Texas; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Orange County, California; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Seattle, Washington; and Washington, D.C./Northern Virginia represent the selected case study sites. The historical development and utilization trends for the HOV projects in these locations are examined. Further, based on available data, the case study HOV projects and other HOV facilities are analyzed using the nine evaluation measures developed as part of the overall study. (61 p., 23 fig.)
