Dual influences on vehicle speed in special-use lanes and critique of US regulation

  • Jang, Kitae
  • Cassidy, Michael J.
Registered author(s):

    We verify that slow speeds in a special-use lane, such as a carpool or bus lane, can be due to both, high demand for that lane and slow speeds in the adjacent regular-use lane. These dual influences are confirmed from months of data collected from all freeway carpool facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area. Additional data indicate that both influences hold: for other types of special-use lanes, including bus lanes; and for other parts of the world.
