HOT lanes have been successful in other metropolitan areas as long as there is connectivity between various freeways, said Rod Diridon, executive director of the Mineta Transportation Institute at San Jose State University.
A concerned San Mateo County transportation committee Monday will hear the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's proposal to designate high occupancy toll lanes on four lane stretches of northbound and southbound Highway 101. For a fee that increases as traffic becomes more congested, solo drivers would be able to take the so called HOT lanes.

Use of the HOT lanes would be paid for electronically via the same FasTrak system used on Bay Area bridges. Early estimates for peak commute time pricing range from 40 to 50 cents per mile.
Fremier and a transportation consultant will present the proposal Monday to the county's Congestion Management Environmental Quality Committee, made up of 14 mostly elected officials.
Currently in the county, there are car pool lanes on the 6.9 mile stretch of Highway 101 from Whipple Avenue in Redwood City south to the Santa Clara County border. However, a study that has been launched would determine whether to add carpool lanes on Highway 101 from Redwood City north to the San Francisco border. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission has proposed adding the HOT lanes to the existing carpool lanes from Redwood City on south, plus from about Redwood City to Millbrae, or even farther north, should that stretch of roadway be given car pool lanes.

"Certainly we would be open to the idea, but I think it's safe to say ". there are a lot of questions," said Richard Napier, executive director of the City/County Association of Governments, which oversees the committee.
In all, the MTC plans to convert 800 miles of Bay Area freeways into HOT lanes for $7.6 billion. Revenues from the earliest HOT lanes would be used to build later lanes, and leftover money would be spent on beefed up California Highway Patrol enforcement and other transportation improvements.
"I would rather see people, instead of paying, have another person in the car," Napier said.
programs, such as diamond lanes and on ramp metering lights.
Napier said the proposal poses concerns over whether commuters will be discouraged to car pool should they be allowed to simply buy into the diamond lanes.
"You're going to have the people who are actually looking at saving time and saving money, and that would be your car poolers," Maley Grubl said. "They want to get there quicker and they also want to not pay a toll."

As for whether car poolers would opt for solo driving if they could buy into diamond lanes, Christine Maley Grubl, executive director of the Peninsula Traffic Congestion Relief Alliance, argued that would likely not be the case.

"It does have some potential for success," Diridon said. "It only works until the lanes are jammed, and then the HOT lanes are no faster than the other lanes."
