Diamond High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lanes

By using HOV lanes during commute hours, you can zip by traffic and cut your commute time by an average of 30 minutes a day!

To use the HOV lane during commute hours, you must be traveling in a carpool, vanpool or public transit vehicle. Motorcycle riders may also use diamond lanes. During non-commute hours, the lane reverts to general traffic use.

HOV lanes vary in their hours of operation and in the number of people required to use the lane. Check the list below to verify the details for the HOV lane(s) on your commute. Be sure to follow the guidelines, as a violation of the HOV lane use can result in a $271 fine.

Vanpool Services

Vanpooling is a convenient and affordable alternative for individuals commuting long distances. Solano Napa Commuter Information (SNCI) can help you form or join a vanpool and save hundreds of dollars each month! Vanpools typically carry 7-15 riders that share the cost of maintaining the van.

SNCI offers incentives for vanpools traveling to, from or through Solano and Napa Counties.

SNCI provides services to help form vanpools and keep them on the road. You can use your own van or we can provide information on how to lease one. A commuter vanpool start-up kit is available at your request which includes state regulations.
