495 Express Lanes

The 495 Express Lanes, on the Virginia side of the Capital Beltway, are intended to provide faster, more direct options for high-occupancy vehicles and toll-paying customers.

There are two new high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes in each direction, from the Springfield Interchange to just north of the Dulles Toll Road. The lanes run down the middle of the Capital Beltway.

Carpools with three or more people can use the Express Lanes toll-free with an E-ZPass Flex set to HOV mode.

E-ZPass and E-ZPass Flex

All users of the Express Lanes will need an E-ZPass®. There are two kinds of E-ZPass: standard and E-ZPass® FlexSM. Both allow drivers to pay tolls electronically, without slowing down. The E-ZPass Flex allows vehicles with at least three people in them to use the Express Lanes without paying a toll.
