HOT LANE (HIGH-OCCUPANCY TOLL LANE)

A tolled lane that operates alongside existing highway lanes to provide users with a faster and more reliable travel option. Metro, Caltrans, and other mobility partners are working together on a one-year demonstration project, scheduled to open in 2012 during which existing carpool lanes on the I-10 El Monte Busway and I-110 Harbor Transitway will be converted to HOT Lanes- called ExpressLanes.
