Feasibility Study of Advanced Technology HOV Systems Volume 3: Benefit Implications of Alternative Policies for Including HOV lanes in Route Guidance Networks
This study aims to investigate whether it would be beneficial to include HOV lanes in route guidance networks when high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes exist on the corridors. This is an important policy issue for a number of reasons. First, HOV lanes are integral parts of many urban corridors in the U.S., and there is no compelling reason at this time to exclude them from route guidance networks. Second, HOVs share same roadways with single occupancy vehicles (SOVs) outside HOV lanes, thus congestion outside HOV lanes also affects HOVs. Therefore, HOVs can conceivably benefit from having route guidance information to guide their journey. Third, evidence suggests that HOV lanes are a good public policy, thus it appears desirable to continue to provide travel-time advantages to HOVs over SOVs even when advanced route guidance technologies become available.
