E-ZPass Flex

E-ZPass Flex Transponder

Toll-free travel on High Occupancy Toll and the 64, 66, 95/495 Express Lanes

E-ZPass Flex is an E-ZPass with an additional switchable feature designed specifically for those traveling on Virginia High Occupancy Toll (HOT) or Express Lanes. This innovative transponder will specifically benefit those who are traveling with the number of people in their vehicle required to qualify for an HOV discount (2 or 3 depending on the roadway).


When you have the required number of people in your vehicle for that roadway, you can simply slide the switch to the right and the Flex transponder will display "HOV ON." Do this before entering the roadway and you can ride the designated HOT or Express Lanes without having to pay any tolls. For those riding with fewer than the required number of people in the vehicle, just slide the switch all the way to the left, covering the words "HOV ON," and travel the designated HOT or Express Lanes at the posted toll rate. E-ZPass Flex also works like a standard E-ZPass on all other toll roads in Virginia and wherever E-ZPass is accepted regardless of the position of the switch.


Please Note: Users who have not used their Flex transponder for HOV transactions on Express Lanes for a prior six month period will be required to exchange their Flex transponder for a standard transponder (at no cost) or be subject to a one-time transponder functionality upgrade charge of $10. This only applies to transponders issued after October 1st 2014.
