The 95 Express Lanes are high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes which means high occupancy vehicles (HOV-3+) such as carpools, vans and buses will have free access to the lanes. If you have fewer than three people in your car, you can pay a toll to use the lanes.
Whether you carpool, drive or ride a bus, the 95 Express Lanes will provide you with new travel choices and congestion relief.
You have two options - standard E-ZPass or E-ZPass® Flex℠. The E-ZPass you need depends on how you plan to use the Express Lanes. The standard E-ZPass always pays a toll and the E-ZPass Flex lets you travel toll-free when carpooling.
