Carpool lane gets little use – Metro US

Carpool lane gets little use

Only a fraction of the daily traffic that uses the Southeast Expressway to commute to and from Boston uses the high-occupancy vehicle lane.

About 1 in 20 cars use the carpool lane, according to the Patriot Ledger.

Other states allow hybrid or electric cars to use the lane or single-occupied cars that pay a fee. There are no plans to alter HOV usage in Boston.
