from OMCA

During the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games, on some routes in the GTHA one lane will be converted to a temporary HOV lane. Temporary HOV lanes will operate from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. and will be marked with pavement markings and signs. A government website lists the following vehicles as being eligible to use the temporary HOV lanes:

• Accredited Games vehicles used to transport athletes, media, officials, etc.
• Motor vehicles with 3 or more occupants from June 29 through July 27
• Motor vehicles with 2 or more occupants from July 28 through August 18
• Emergency vehicles
• Public transit
• Licenced taxis
• Airport limousines (on provincial highways only)
• Electric vehicles and green vehicles (on provincial highways only)

MTO's Traffic Office has confirmed that all buses, even empty buses and buses with no Games affiliation, are permitted to use the temporary HOV lanes. more
