A MANUAL FOR PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION PRIORITY TECHNIQUES FOR HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLES: CHIEF EXECUTIVE REPORT

By giving preferential treatment to high occupancy vehicles, local administrators and elected officials can encourage more efficient use of transportation resources by increasing the capacity of urban streets and highways at relatively low cost. The Urban Consortium, acting through Public Technology, Inc. (PTI), has joined with the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to evaluate and document priority techniques for high occupancy vehicles. Generally, it has been found that most priority techniques: Help move people more efficiently; are less costly than new and elaborate construction; can be implemented quickly when compared to most other solutions; are easily modified to meet changing conditions; and do not involve irreversible decisions or irrevocable resource commitments.
