HOV lanes to pave way for high occupancy toll lanes
But, according to a CTV News report, Premier Kathleen Wynne told reporters on Wednesday morning that this two month pilot will help the province determine a plan for implementing HOT (High Occupancy Toll) lanes in Ontario.
Premier Wynne's government first proposed the HOT lanes back in 2013. Like the current system, the HOT lanes would be free for vehicles with multiple occupants. Single drivers would pay for access and ultimately, the chance to speed by traffic.
While there is no set timeline or location for the HOT lane project, money raised from it would go towards improving Ontario's public transit infrastructure.
