If you are a user of the QEW you have seen the High Occupancy Toll, or HOT, lanes that they have had in place for some time now. There are a number of people who can use these lanes.
- vehicles with a HOT permit
- vehicles with two or more people
- vehicles with green licence plates
- emergency vehicles
- licensed taxis and airport limousines
To obtain an HOT permit you will need to apply, currently they are accepting applications for the July 1, 2017 to September 30, 2017 term and will be accepting them until May 31, 2017. Up to 1,000 permits will be sold during. Permits will be valid for three months and will cost a total of $180. Once you have a permit you can automatically renew it twice before you need to apply again.
