Abstract:

This report describes a system designed to provide Single Occupancy Hybrid Vehicles (SOHVs) restriction messages dynamically to drivers through variable message signs. It provides a way for Caltrans (California Department of Transportation )Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) to determine whether or not SOHVs should be permitted in HOV facilities and to convey that information to drivers. It also provides insight in understanding various HOV restriction scenarios and their impact on HOV lane and mainline congestion. Researchers studied, via simulations, the effects of permitting or restricting eligible SOHV from use of HOV facilities. Results from the simulations showed that reduction in vehicles eligible to use HOV lane (not just SOHV but any vehicle) could reduce not only the delay experienced by HOV vehicles but also the total system delay.
