Q&A - Bus and HOV lanes
Since leaving CMBC, I have been driving a senior's society's bus. Metro Vancouver has roads with lanes signed to show they are for HOV, Buses only, Vanpool & Buses, or "Authorized Vehicles only". If the bus is empty, I don't use an HOV lane, but will use the Buses only, and Vanpool & buses only lanes. When full, I use the HOV, Buses only, and Vanpool & Buses lanes. I always avoid the Authorized Vehicles only lanes, even though other buses use them, because I do not know which buses are authorized, and I don't want to end a 40 year ticket-free run. Am I right?
