The HOV lanes are successful in their operation based on this reports assessment.   High-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes are one or more lanes of a roadway that have restrictions on use to encourage ridesharing and can reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT). Rules for HOV lanes vary and are usually posted. Typically, HOV lanes are open to motor vehicles carrying two or more people, and sometimes access is open to motorcycles or vehicles that use alternative fuels .

A high-occupancy vehicle lane (also known as an HOV lane, carpool lane, diamond lane, 2+ lane, and transit lane or T2 or T3 lanes) is a restricted traffic lane reserved for the exclusive use of vehicles with a driver and one or more passengers, including carpools, vanpools, and transit buses.

These restrictions may be only imposed during peak travel times or may apply at all times. HIGH-OCCUPANCY-VEHICLE (HOV) LANES Two HOV lanes operate in the Boston metropolitan region: a reversible, barrier-separated lane on I/Southeast Expressway that connects downtown Boston and Route 3 at the Braintree split interchange, and a southbound, buffer-separated lane on I North that approaches Boston from the north (see Figure ).

A non-separated concurrent-flow lane was instituted on Boston's Southeast Expressway on May 4, An eight-mile section of the left-most inbound lane was reserved for buses and carpools of three or more persons between the hours of a.m. and : H Simkowitz. This figure displays the average travel times for the northbound HOV lane of the Southeast Expressway (I) during the AM peak period.

It is a replication of Figure 6 from the memo titled “Historical Trends: Travel Times and Vehicle Occupancy Levels for I North and Southeast Expressway HOV and General-Purpose Lanes” (). In high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) facility design, there are concerns about the impacts of merging and weaving movements at the ingress and egress (I/E) sections of a barrier-separated freeway HOV la.

from a general use lane or general toll lane within a roadway corridor. Express lanes use dynamic pricing through electronic tolling in which toll amounts are set based on traffic conditions.” Express lanes can provide a high degree of operational flexibility, which enables them to be actively managed to respond to changing traffic demands.

During your commute on the Southeast Expressway, you may be able to drive in the HOV Zipper Lane within peak traffic hours. Open Monday - Friday Open to northbound HOV traffic 5 a.m. – 10 a.m. Open to southbound HOV traffic 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) facilities provide preferential treatment for buses, vanpools, carpools, and other designated vehicles by providing lanes and roadways reserved for their use.

A local example of an HOV facility is the Long Island Expressway (LIE) HOV lane, which is restricted to buses, van pools, taxis, and passenger vehicles.

Massachusetts has two sets of car pool lanes, both appearing on I, which funnels commuters into and out of the greater Boston area. On the northwest expressway the car pool lane is only open for southbound traffic, and the lane lasts for miles.

On the southeast expressway the car pool lanes are open in both directions, and for miles. High-occupancy vehicle (HOV) treatments are distinguished by the Southeast Expressway HOV lane, which would be about 8 mi long, travel time savings would be far greater and the Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, Inc., One South Station, Evaluation of Radial HOV Options.
