A study is reported in which high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane projects in 6 cities were examined. The reasons behind the development, the history of the facilities, the roles and responsibilities of the agencies and organizations, and other relevant issues were examined. Ten characteristics common to successful operation of HOV projects were identified: significant congestion and projected growth in travel demand; lack of a fixed-guideway transit plan; planned highway improvements; project champions in positions of authority; legislative direction and agency policy support; lead agency for development and implementation of the project; interagency cooperation; joint funding; support of federal agencies; and flexibility and adapatibility.
