HOV parking nearly halved; premium ticketholders exempted

Atlantic Yards Report explains how fancy people will be able to drive in to Nets games all by their lonesome selves. Those rich guys have everything. Except two friends to bring in the car?

DEIS detail

In Chapter 19, Mitigation, of the DEIS, the ESDC stated:
HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE (HOV) PARKING
To encourage higher occupancy in auto travel to and from the arena and to discourage single and two-person auto trips, arena parking on the project site would have a three or more person requirement after 5 PM on game days. Again, this would be advertised for fans purchasing tickets on-line. The objective is to encourage increased vehicle occupancy by using a location incentive. This restriction would not apply to arena suites.
(Emphasis added)

FEIS revisions

In Chapter 19, Mitigation, of the FEIS, the ESDC stated:
HIGH OCCUPANCY VEHICLE (HOV) PARKING
To encourage higher occupancy in auto travel to and from the arena and to discourage single and two-person auto trips, approximately 600 of the 1,100 parking spaces available on-site for use by fans at a Nets basketball game would have a three or more person requirement after 5 PM on game days. This would be advertised for fans purchasing tickets on-line. The objective is to encourage increased vehicle occupancy by using a location incentive. The remaining 500 spaces would be dedicated to suites and premium seating and would not be subject to the HOV parking requirements.
(Emphasis added)
