HOT Lanes

The advantage of rail transit is its dedicated right-of-way, which enables rail service to avoid traffic congestion on the roads. But bus systems can also be provided with dedicated rights of way, which are called “busways” or “HOT Lanes,” and can operate far more efficiently at lower cost than rail, with a mix of express buses, carpools and toll-paying cars, providing faster service from many origins directly to many destinations. Reversible HOT Lanes are far superior to rail for Oahu.

Buses can utilize a guideway better than rail because buses can pick people up in our dispersed communities and drive directly onto the guideway, quickly reaching the destination non-stop and without transfer, without passengers having to change modes in a transfer
