Overview

With freeway congestion at record highs in the Bay Area, what can transportation agencies do now? Through the Bay Area’s Managed Lanes Implementation Plan (MLIP), regional agencies are looking at how to more effectively manage the growing Bay Area high occupancy vehicle (HOV) and express lane network as a cohesive system and to increase passenger throughput by supporting carpools and express buses. The plan’s extensive data collection and analysis effort on person throughput, clean air vehicles, and HOV violations in managed lanes has bolstered the technical reasoning behind why and how HOV operational policies can change to respond to today’s traffic conditions and travel demands.
