Drivers can now enter, exit 91 Freeway carpool lanes wherever they want in part of Riverside

Ride sharers soon will be able to jump in and out of the carpool lanes at any point on the 91 Freeway from downtown Riverside to east Corona.

Before too long, even those who travel alone may get the green light to drive in carpool lanes on Riverside County freeways — in between rush-hours. But not so fast.

First, Caltrans has to do a study to see if it would make sense to open the special lanes to all traffic at less-busy hours, as is done on the 60 Freeway in Moreno Valley and widely across Northern California.

Cervantes Public Safety Legislation Signed into Law

(SACRAMENTO) –This week, Assembly Bill 1994 and Assembly Bill 2080 by Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) were signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. Both bills were sponsored by Attorney General Xavier Becerra and will provide law enforcement with the information necessary to track criminal offenders.

In 2019, the 91 Freeway’s carpool lanes in Riverside County will be more accessible

It soon will be easier to get in and out of the carpool lanes on the 91 Freeway in Riverside County.

Beginning in 2019, carpool lanes on the arterial freeway – with the exception of toll lanes – will gradually go from “limited access” to continuous access, the office of Assemblywoman Sabrina Cervantes, D-Riverside, announced Wednesday, Sept. 19. That means you’ll be able to enter and exit the 91’s HOV lanes at any point, not just where the yellow lines break.

Governor Signs Cervantes Bill to Study Conversion of Riverside County Carpool Lanes

(SACRAMENTO) – Today, Assembly Bill 91 by Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. AB 91 will help ease late-night traffic jams in Riverside County by requiring a study of the feasibility of allowing single-occupancy cars to use high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, commonly known as “carpool lanes,” during non-peak traffic hours. In particular, the Department of Transportation (CalTrans) will study the possible effects of converting carpool lanes in Riverside County on both State Route 91 between Interstate 15 and Interstate 215, and on State Route 60.
