Every day, more than a million people choose to save the hassle of bumper-to-bumper rush hour by hopping in a carpool or Park and Ride bus that uses the HOV lane. METRO operates the HOV lanes on I-45, I-69, and US-290, while HCTRA runs the lanes on the Katy Freeway. You can find plenty of information about our lanes here, but there's a few key pieces to remember if you choose to drive in the HOV lanes:
One more note about the HOV lanes – pack your patience. When someone needs a tow truck, METRO has to shut down the lane for several miles so the truck can reverse down the lane to hook up to the disabled vehicle. This process takes time. Stay patient, and know that we are working as diligently as possible to keep traffic moving.
