METRO Board Approves Extension and Expansion of Popular HOV Pilot Project

METRO’s popular I-45 North HOV pilot program will be extended and expanded through the end of December 2019. The pilot program, which began in May of this year, was slated to end in late September. METRO’s Board of Directors decided to extend the program due to the initial success. It will also give METRO staff the opportunity to continue to track usage.

Both the North and Gulf Freeway’s High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes will be open to inbound traffic only on weekends from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. though Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019. Use of the lanes is free during specified hours (see charts below) and no minimum number of occupants is required. Towed trailers and trucks over one ton are prohibited from accessing the lane.
