    High occupancy vehicles lanes (HOV) are highway lanes usually reserved to vehicles carrying at least two persons. They are designed to help move more people though congested areas. In this context, automatic passenger counting systems could be useful to Cited by: 8. The California Department of Transportation's mission is to provide a safe, sustainable, integrated and efficient transportation system to enhance California's economy and livability. The Traffic Operations Program is at the forefront of these efforts, providing better safety and mobility for all modes of travel. Contact Traffic Operations.

      High occupancy vehicle lanes have become an integral part of regional transportation planning. Their purpose is to increase ridesharing by offering a travel time advantage to multiple occupant vehicles. This paper examines the extent to which an HOV facility increases ridesharing. Using data from the Route 55 HOV facility in Orange Country, California, changes in the carpooling rate on Route Cited by: (h) (1) Notwithstanding Section , and except as provided in paragraph (2), a vehicle described in subdivision (a) that displays a valid decal, label, or identifier issued pursuant to this section shall be granted a toll-free or reduced-rate passage in high-occupancy toll lanes as described in Section of the Streets and Highways.

    Council has approved principles that guide the development and operation of bus and high occupancy vehicle lanes (HOV) as included in Appendix B. This treatment was recommended as a measure to improve air quality in the Clouds of Change Report. Existing facilities operate on the following streets: Georgia Street - Burrard to Chilco. Edition Chapter 1A. General Section 1A Purpose of Traffic Control Devices. Support: 01 The purpose of traffic control devices, as well as the principles for their use, is to promote highway safety and efficiency by providing for the orderly movement of all road users on streets, highways, bikeways, and private roads open to public travel throughout the Nation.

Get this from a library. High occupancy vehicle facility development: operation and enforcement. [JHK & Associates.; United States. Federal Highway Administration.;] -- This report provides guidance on the planning, design, operation, and enforcement of HOV Facilities. The report was prepared in two volumes and both volumes are used as textbooks in a two-day.

FOREWORD This textbook was originally written and used as part of a 2-day training course dealing with the design of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) facilities.

Federal Highway Administration.;]. 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.

Operation restrictions may be only imposed during peak travel times or may apply at all times. High-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, which are designed so as to encourage more people to use high-capacity travel modes and thus move more people in a single.

Operations Planning / HOV Policies. The development of an operations plan is foremost in the success of the HOV facility. It should be noted that the development of an operations plan cannot be done in isolation, but needs close integration with the facility's enforcement plan ().The plan should also address the various policy issues associated with HOVs, including those discussed below.

High Occupancy Vehicle Facilities. High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) facilities serve to increase the total number of people moved through a congested corridor by offering two kinds of travel incentives: a substantial savings in travel time, along with a reliable and predictable travel time.

environment for effective HOV enforcement. A number of high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) projects have suboptimal levels of enforcement. This is due in part to a lack of engineering concern with en­ forcement, even though the enforcement issue has a considerable impact on the operational and safety.

DEVELOPMENT OF ARTERIAL HIGH-OCCUPANCY-VEHICLE LANE ENFORCEMENT TECHNIQUES. The objective of this study was to develop effective enforcement techniques for arterial high-occupancy-vehicle (HOV) lanes. To accomplish this objective, enforcement techniques that have been studied for freeway HOV lanes were identified, arterial HOV lanes were.
