After much nail-biting, Metro released a preliminary report on how the I-110 HOT Lanes are doing. Summarily, speeds of 45 mph were sustained on the ExpressLanes 100% of the time, a critical factor sought by the federal government, which funded the pilot project. Also, even though vehicle counts on the lanes remain the same, the number of carpoolers using the lanes is down, while the number of solo drivers increased. Ultimately, while speeds on the conventional lanes are notably down, Metro expects that other drivers will note the extra capacity on the HOT lanes and take advantage, thus leading to faster speeds on the free lanes. On-time performance for Silver Line buses has also improved. The report also lists some myths about the lanes Metro is doing its best to dispel.
