91 Express Lanes Usage Exceeds Expectations

In record numbers, people are taking advantage of the reliable, smooth travel alternative offered by the 91 Express Lanes. During the summer months through September 4.6 million trips were taken. In September alone, nearly 1.5 million trips were recorded, a daily average of more than 49,000 and a 4.2 percent increase over the previous year.

The 91 Express Lanes has exceeded predicted traffic volumes since the Riverside County Transportation Commission extended the lanes into Riverside County in 2017. A strong economy and job and housing growth also contribute to the rise in traffic volume.

The 91 Express Lanes is a four-lane toll road with 10 miles in Orange County in the median of SR-91, one of Southern California’s most heavily traveled freeways and a critical link between job centers in Orange County and housing in Riverside County. An additional 8 miles of the 91 Express Lanes, operated by the Riverside County Transportation Commission, opened in March 2017.
