Express/HOT Lanes

TTI appreciates the complexity of tolling issues associated with Express/HOT lanes.  Unlike traditional tolled roadways, Express Lanes require unique tolling knowledge that stems from first-hand experience designing, implementing, and operating such facilities.  This is because Express Lanes provide mobility choices to customers by offering them the ability to escape congested General Purpose lanes for a price. 

Consequently, the success of Express Lanes is tied to the coordination with the General Purpose lanes, from the conceptual design stage all the way through to daily operations.  The TTI team has direct experience integrating tolling systems and operations with other corridor operations, such as Traffic Management Centers, incident responses by first responders, police enforcement, ramp metering, and roadway maintenance.

Another key value of our tolling and Express Lanes operational experience is the understanding of the design impacts on the traffic and revenue projects and the financial viabilities of projects. TTI can provide clients with lifecycle costing insight during the planning and design phases.
