High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes are considered as one of the traffic management strategies to efficiently utilize the available roadway capacity. HOT lanes aim to make better use of existing High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and potentially reduce congestion on freeway corridors. The technical feasibility of HOT lane implementation is influenced by several factors, most importantly the traffic demand, which requires additional information on the willingness to pay or value of time that travellers place on different types of travel, to forecast the HOT lane demand.
This presentation will highlight the details of the case study to understand drivers’ reactions to the planned HOT lane along the Highway 427 corridor in the City of Toronto and estimate the value of time (VOT) and value of reliability (VOR). The abstract of the conducted study can be found here.
