Managed Lanes are additional lanes on a highway where the traffic is managed for reliable travel time. Drivers are offered a choice to pay a toll for a reliable travel time on the new lane(s) with little to no congestion, or to use the existing lanes without charge. This is referred to as an Express Lane. A High Occupancy Toll (HOT) Lane offers the additional option to carpools to use the managed lane at a reduced toll.

Whether it is an Express Lane or HOT Lane, tolls would only be charged for using the newly added lane(s) giving drivers the option to travel on the general purpose (existing) lanes free of tolls.
