El Monte Busway (I-10 in Los Angeles County) was originally bus only, then started to allow carpools (3+) during a 1976 bus strike.

Over the years, the mixed bus/carpool lane has worked well. A few years back, a local politician was able to have the carpool requirement dropped from 3 to 2 people: the lanes clogged up, so the 3 person requirement was reestablished (peak hours). Another issue that hybrid or zero-emission autos, regardless of load, are allowed in and that has also slowed the lanes down.

Sometime next year, the lanes will be converted to HOT, with tolls rising as speeds in the lanes drop.
