I-95/NW 7TH AVENUE BUS/CAR POOL SYSTEMS DEMONSTRATION PROJECT REPORT II-2. EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTS OF THE I-95 EXCLUSIVE BUS/CAR POOL LANE PRIORITY SYSTEM ON VEHICULAR AND PASSENGER MOVEMENTS

Express bus operations on the new priority lanes on I-95 in March 1976 constitute Phase II of the project. The report, Report II-2, discusses the effects of priority systems on vehicle operations, passenger movements, violations and enforcement, and safety. The report concludes that: all travel times were reduced when lanes were opened; violation rate dropped from 63% (three persons occupancy) to 37% (two persons occupancy); additional lanes on I-95 significantly decreased the accident rate on a daily basis.
