Description:  Adopt the California exemption that authorizes single-occupancy zero emission vehicle access to HOV lanes. Sunsets in five years or after zero emission vehicles reach 10% of all registered passenger vehicles, depending on impact to HOV lane capacity.

Why This Should Be Supported:  Studies and experience in California indicate access to HOV lanes is one of the best incentives to purchasing and leasing zero emission vehicles.


  1. Additional fees could be levied on vehicle owners eligible for HOV lane access to help pay for State administrative costs.

Estimated State Costs:  $?.  We expect there to be some minimal administrative costs.
