COMING SOON – NEW RULES ON 95:
Article from 95 Express Lanes
November 14, 2014
When the 95 Express Lanes open, motorcyclists can use the Express Lanes anytime without paying a toll.
You can travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes 24 hours a day, seven days a week and you do not need an E-ZPass® on your motorcycle to take the Express Lanes.
If you already have an E-ZPass on your motorcycle, you can leave it in place when you travel on the 95 Express Lanes. The system will detect that you’re traveling via motorcycle and not charge you a toll.
The Express Lanes end north of Edsall Road. Standard HOV rules will apply on I-395:
- As a motorcyclist, you’ll be able to head north on the 95 Express Lanes and continue on to the I-395 HOV lanes no matter the time of day
- You need three people in the car (including you) and your E-ZPass® FlexSM set to HOV mode to travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes
- 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

Prepare now so you’re ready to take the 95 Express Lanes when they open.
The transition from HOV lanes to express lanes system will bring added benefits for motorcyclists – including relief from the current bottleneck at Dumfries where the HOV lanes end and access to new locations in Stafford County, Tysons Corner and Ft. Belvoir.
