What are HOV Lanes and When can We Use Them?
HOV lanes are dedicated lanes to be used exclusively by vehicles with two or more people--including buses, carpools and vanpools.
HOV lanes are in Las Vegas on U.S. 95 from Ann Road to the Spaghetti Bowl. HOV lanes can reduce peak-period travel time compared to general-purpose lanes and can move substantially more commuters than general-purpose lanes during peak demand periods.
What Are the Benefits of HOV Lanes?
HOV lanes can reduce peak-period travel time compared to general-purpose lanes and can move substantially more commuters than general-purpose lanes during peak demand periods. HOV lane users experience less congestion, arriving at their destinations more quickly than those who do not carpool.
It also costs less to ride a bus or to share a ride than to drive alone every day. Other benefits include a more reliable commute and less stress. The community also benefits. HOV lanes provide a better use of infrastructure and can serve more people than general-purpose lanes.
What Are The I-15 Express Lanes?
The I-15 express lanes are designated lanes on I-15 that run alongside the Las Vegas Strip from Sahara Avenue to Silverado Ranch Boulevard. The express lanes are separated from general purpose lanes by double solid white lines.
Express lanes are the same as regular lanes, except that drivers can only enter and exit the express lanes at designated areas. Because they are separated from traffic using the entrance and exit ramps onto the Strip, the express lanes reduce congestion and safety concerns created by vehicles exiting or entering onto the resort corridor.
