Congestion on Canadian highways is having a significant negative economic impact on major Canadian cities. Rather than face the political challenge of introducing road tolls to discourage traffic, governments have chosen to build carpool lanes on urban highways, despite evidence that these lanes have limited effectiveness in curbing congestion.

Ben will present a case for converting existing and planned carpool lanes to high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes, giving drivers the choice of using them or free lanes. Policymakers in major Canadian cities need realistic options for reducing the economic cost of congestion and increasing revenue for transportation infrastructure; converting carpool to HOT lanes would fit those needs.
