High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lanes Pilot Project

Canada’s first High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lanes were a key government transportation commitment publicly announced in December 2015 and introduced to Ontario on September 15, 2016. The HOT pilot program and supporting retail and distribution system was developed and delivered in less than nine months as an online service. MTO and ServiceOntario collaborated to simultaneously develop policy, performance measures and program design, including an online digital retail service. This successful team approach ensured a key government priority was delivered within a compressed timeframe while introducing a new business model for digital services. Typically, to deploy an online service of this nature, it takes 12 to 18 months to deliver. The HOT Lanes Pilot Branch, Policy and Planning Division, Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) is nominated for TAC’s Sustainable Urban Transportation Award for the development and implementation of Canada’s first High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lane.
