TORONTO – The City of Toronto has reduced the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane restrictions along Eglinton Avenue East between Leslie Street and Cedar Drive from three or more passengers to two or more beginning today.

The city says the change is being made to improve the flow of traffic in the busy corridor.

The HOV lanes will continue to give priority to TTC buses, taxicabs, motorcycles and bicycles.

The lanes are in effect from Monday to Friday, except on holiday, during morning and afternoon peak periods between 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
