What does "HOV 2+" mean on the carpool lane sign

HOV is an acronym for High Occupancy Vehicle(s).

It generally describes any vehicle carrying two or more persons on a single journey. 2+ means two or more people must occupy the vehicle; or it simply refers to the number of people in the car.

HOV lanes are sometimes called carpool lanes, diamond lanes, commuter lanes or busways, are special lanes on a roadway reserved exclusively for the use of carpools, vanpools and/or buses. It enables those who carpool or ride the bus to bypass traffic in the adjacent unrestricted general-purpose lanes.
