Questions & Answers: Riding METRO

On this page, you can get answers to common questions about riding METRO, all in one place.

Using the Lanes

A map and videos showing specific entry and exit points along the I-45, Hwy. 59 and Hwy. 290 corridors can be found on the HOV / HOT Express Lanes page.

  • Trailer towing is prohibited
  • No trucks with more than two axles or a gross weight capacity of one ton or greater
  • No bicycles – but motorcycles are permitted
  • No pedestrians

There’s no minimum speed, but as with any highway driving, you should maintain enough speed to avoid slowing down the flow of traffic. The speed limit in the HOV/HOT lanes is the same as the freeway it runs alongside.
