Carpooling is a common method that enables the driver and riders to meet the minimum car capacity to use HOV or Express lanes. Having three or more occupants in the car can also mean riding for free on some toll roads. Many installations provide convenient, exclusive parking spots for commuters who carpool to work.

Commuter Connections’ local rideshare office helps match people together who are interested in forming a new carpool and can provide detailed advice and information to commuters from local jurisdictions.

Waze has a separate Waze Carpool app that matches you with other commuters travelling to similar destinations.

GoEzy features a complete suite of available mode options and services include driver navigation, dynamic carpool pairing, transit, ride hailing, micro-transit, biking, and walking. Mobile payments for transit, TNC, bike rentals, and more are fully integrated as well. Intermodal capabilities allow users to chain together modes of travel to increase their options and solve first-mile/last-mile challenges.

Express Lanes

The Express Lanes will help get you there faster with quick, simple and predictable travel along 495, 95 and 395 in Northern Virginia. Grab your E-ZPass®, buckle up and enjoy riding in the fast lanes. Driving with three or more passengers in the car or with a vanpool allows you to ride on the Express Lanes for free. See Carpool/Rideshare above for more information on finding or forming a carpool. See below for more information on forming a vanpool.


There are numerous vanpools through the region. The Federal Mass Transit Subsidy can be used to supplement costs up to $270/month associated with vanpools. To find a vanpool near you and learn more about how the subsidy works, visit
