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.
