OPERATIONAL DESIGN GUIDELINES FOR HOV LANES ON ARTERIAL ROADWAYS INCLUDING PLANNING STRATEGIES AND SUPPORTING MEASURES

The purpose of this document is to summarize relevant information and proven guidelines in the areas of planning, design and operation of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes on arterial roadways in Ontario municipalities. It is intended for reference by planners, designers and decision-makers involved in developing municipal transportation programs and facilities. This document presents a set of experience-based HOV guidelines, but does not purport to define standards for all Ontario applications. Some standards may evolve over time, while many HOV applications will be tailored to site-specific needs and conditions. This report is based on the guidelines developed as part of the Metro Toronto HOV Network Study, augmented by recent operational experience and research in Ontario and elsewhere, and modified to reflect the needs of the broader community.
