Operational characteristics of four types of relatively low cost preferential treatment for high occupancy vehicles are described. They include a contraflow bus lane, a with-flow bus lane, a with-flow bus- carpool lane, and preferential access to a metered freeway. The projects are described in terms of their physical configuration, safety experience, violation experience, and enforcement experience. All are practical treatments and a choice of a particular type depends on traffic characteristics, types of bus service, and freeway configurations.
