GUIDE FOR THE DESIGN OF HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE FACILITIES

This design guide has been developed for the purpose of helping to achieve the following transportation systems management (TSM) goals: To maximize the person-moving capacity of roadway facilities by providing improved operating level of service for high occupancy vehicles (HOVs), both public and private; To conserve fuel and to minimize consumption of other resources needed for transportation; To improve air quality; and To increase overall accessibility while reducing vehicular congestion. Part I deals with HOV options in terms of planning and operations; Part II deals with design criteria for HOV options on freeways; and Part III deals with design criteria for HOV options on surface arterial streets. The information contained in this guide will be useful for the planning and design of HOV facilities. It will also serve as a basis for further refinement as operational experience dictates. A glossary is provided.
