  What’s New

  • Express Lanes Open – The full rules of the road including tolling and the 24/7 E-ZPass/E-ZPass Flex requirement are in effect. Toll prices are on the dynamic signs. Please be alert for new traffic patterns.
  • Miss a Toll? – If you traveled accidentally without an E-ZPass, you can avoid a toll invoice by paying your toll through the Missed a Toll process. These payments are made through Express Lanes not GWRideConnect.
  • New Program! – VDOT and the 95 Express Lanes launched a new program to help ease the transition for carpoolers who have ordered – but haven’t yet received – their E-ZPass Flex. Full-time carpoolers who order an E-ZPass Flex via Virginia E-ZPass will have an opportunity to register their license plate for seven days of toll-free travel to tide them over until their Flex arrives in the mail.
  • Commuter Connections has introduced mobile apps to give commuters state-of-the-art access to its programs on their smart phones and tablets. Visit Commuter Connections and click on your platform’s image at the top to download.

  • The new E-ZPass Flex is now available. E-ZPass Flex is an E-ZPass with an additional switchable feature designed specifically for those traveling on the new 495 Express Lanes in Northern Virginia with 3 or more people in their vehicle.
