Viewer Email: 290 HOV

Q: Do you know of any reason why the 290 HOV lanes are the only ones that have a three person rule? Just curious…

Jenny D.

A: The occupancy requirement for the 290 diamond lanes is 2+ at all times (this is the non-barrier separated portion). The barrier separated HOV lane is 2+ most of the time, except during morning rush hours (6:45 a.m. – 8a.m.).  The 3+ requirement for the barrier separated HOV has been in place since 1999 due to the level of traffic on this corridor. We continue to monitor the volume of traffic but please note that per the Federal Transit Administration, we are required to maintain traffic flow at 45 mph or higher. – METRO
