HOT Lane Simulation Tools

This report describes the simulation model and software for freeway corridors with High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) and High-Occupancy or Tolled (HOT) lanes, and the model calibration methodology. In the course of this project a simulation framework for freeways with managed lanes was developed around the Berkeley Advanced Traffic Simulator (BeATS). It was tested with freeway segments of I-680 North (full access HOV lane), I-210 East (limited access HOV lane) and I-10 West (limited access HOT lane). Test examples show, the simulation can adequately reproduce traffic behavior in the presence of multiple vehicle classes and managed lane facilities. Model calibration guidelines are provided.This project is an important step in the development of the open source software package for operations planning in multimodal transportation networks.
