HOV Carpool Lanes in NYC
New York City's high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes provide a faster option for drivers with passengers. HOV lanes make our roadways more efficient, incentivize people to carpool, and reduce traffic congestion and harmful emissions.
Access HOV lanes:
- Long Island Expressway HOV-3 Lane into Queens-Midtown Tunnel
- Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel HOV-3 Lane on Gowanus Expressway
- Queensboro Bridge Manhattan-Bound HOV-2 Lane
