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.

“Allowing vehicles to enter and exit carpool lanes at any point would be a win-win situation for Riverside County commuters,” she said.
