I95 Express Lanes

High Occupancy Traffic (HOT) Lanes for Sluggers

For sluggers, and the drivers who pick up slugs, traveling on the 95 Express Lanes will be easy – all you need is an E-ZPass® FlexSM. With three people in the vehicle and an E-ZPass Flex set to HOV mode, sluggers travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes all the time.
The 95 Express Lanes will end just after Edsall Road in Fairfax County. The HOV lanes north of this point will remain HOV only, a continued incentive to slug into Arlington and Washington, D.C.Here's what you need to know to prepare for the 95 Express Lanes.

If you are a driver who picks up slugs to travel on the I-95/I-395 HOV lanes, you will need an E-ZPass Flex set to HOV mode to travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes:

  • E-ZPass Flex works like a standard E-ZPass but lets you switch between HOV and toll-paying modes
  • The switchable E-ZPass Flex lets us know you are a carpooler so that you won't be charged a toll
  • Switch your E-ZPass Flex to HOV mode to travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes
  • Mandatory E-ZPass and enhanced enforcement mean fewer violators
  • E-ZPass Flex works like a standard E-ZPass on all other Virginia toll roads and wherever E-ZPass is accepted – regardless of the position of the switch

The Express Lanes end north of Edsall Road. Standard HOV rules will apply on I-395

  • Carpoolers (HOV-3+) heading north on the 95 Express Lanes will be able to continue on to the I-395 HOV lanes
  • Vehicles that do not meet the HOV requirement when the HOV rules are in effect will need to exit from the Express Lanes and reenter the regular I-395 lanes after Edsall Road to continue into Arlington and Washington, D.C.

Be sure to get an E-ZPass Flex so you can continue to slug – available at AAA Mid-Atlantic, select Giant and Wegmans locations in Northern Virginia, at Tysons Corner Center, online and at E-ZPass customer service centers.

Already have a standard E-ZPass? If you want to carpool/slug on the Express Lanes, add an E-ZPass Flex as an additional transponder on your account, or exchange your existing standard E-ZPass for an E-ZPass Flex.
