HOV/HOT Lane Proposal

In June, SANBAG and IAR met to discuss the various research needs of the agency. One of the major transportation issues involves converting existing HOV lanes on the 210, I-10 and I-15 freeways into HOT lanes, which will allow solo commuters to pay a toll to use these lanes. But before SANBAG makes a final decision, it was agreed that a telephone survey of residents should be undertaken in an effort to determine the public's interest in and willingness to support this conversion of HOV lanes into HOT lanes. These telephone surveys will be conducted with residents of San Bernardino Valley and Victor Valley who use the three freeway corridors. A total of 500 respondents will be surveyed, yielding results with a 95% level of confidence and an accuracy of +/- 4.4%. The questionnaire will be constructed in close consultation with SANBAG Officials and the surveys will be conducted in both English and Spanish. Data from this survey will provide important information by which SANBAG could market such a conversion to the general public.
