95 Express Lanes Opening in December

Open an E-ZPass® account and get one free week of travel

The 95 Express Lanes – 29 miles of high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes – are expected to open this December. The new Express Lanes will provide drivers with a faster, more predictable trip on I-95 in Northern Virginia.

All drivers will need an E-ZPass or E-ZPass® FlexSM to use the Express Lanes.

If you open a new Virginia E-ZPass account, get an E-ZPass or E-ZPass Flex and enter the promo code 95Express between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15, 2014, the Express Lanes will give you one week of toll-free travel on the 95 Express Lanes in early 2015.

You can get an E-ZPass or E-ZPass Flex at 75 convenient Northern Virginia retail locations including Wegmans, select DMVs and Giant Food Stores, or at one of the E-ZPass Customer Service Centers; online or by calling Virginia E-ZPass at (877) 762-7824.

Here’s how to register for your free travel:

  • Go to and enter the promotional code 95Express when you get a new E-ZPass
  • If you purchased or plan to purchase an E-ZPass at a retail location you need to register your E-ZPass on the E-ZPass website to claim your toll-free week. Don’t forget to enter the promotional code 95Express when you register your E-ZPass
  • For complete promotion rules and details, please visit
  • Act quickly because the promotion is limited to the first 5,000 registrants. Certain restrictions apply

Also, throughout October, carpools that get a new E-ZPass Flex and post a photo of their carpool on the Commuter Connections Facebook page with the phrase #95carpoolcontest will be entered to win a $500 gas card for each member of their carpool. Check out the Facebook page for more information.
