• It has been brought to our attention that a text message-based scam, also known as smishing, is fraudulently claiming to represent toll operators across the country. The scammers are falsely claiming to represent these entities and requesting payment for unpaid tolls. The 66 Express encourages all customers to stay alert to these types of scams; more information can be found here.

    Please be advised that 66 Outside the Beltway will be closed in observance of Juneteenth on 6/19/24. We will re-open on 6/20/24 at our regular time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

HOV – Travel Free

Mandated by VDOT policy and enforced by Virginia State Police, HOV3+ rules are in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on the 66 Express Outside the Beltway. The HOV rules on the 66 Express align with HOV rules on other managed-toll facilities in Northern Virginia.
To qualify for HOV3+ status on the 66 Express and enjoy toll-free travel:

  • drive a non-commercial vehicle (passenger car, SUV, minivan, truck)
  • carry three (3) or more human passengers
  • have an E-ZPass Flex transponder set to HOV-On mode and mounted securely to the upper windshield

Vehicles longer than 18 feet and taller than 7 feet, or with 3 or more axles are not HOV-eligible on the 66 Express.

Do you drive a larger passenger vehicle taller than 7 feet and longer than 18 feet? Are you carrying three or more people? Find out if you’re HOV-eligible by contacting our Customer Service Center.

For easy HOV3+ travel, set up or update your E-ZPass Flex transponder and E-ZPass account. Call 1-877-762-7842 or visit www.EZPassVA.com.
