Toll roads and traffic in Northern Virginia can make for a hectic and expensive commute. You can use the Express Lanes on I-66 and I-495 for free to commute to work faster when you share your ride via carpooling or vanpooling.

Commuter Connections allows you to find and connect with other people using a similar route to commute. They’ll even offer you $130 when you start carpooling – that’s up to $2 per day for your first 90 days!

If your employer offers a transit benefit, vanpool may be an even better option where you rent a vehicle from a company like Commute with Enterprise and meet up with others at a park and ride lot before hopping on the Express Lanes for your commute. Vanpool Alliance offers hundreds of dollars to keep your cost of vanpooling low and will help you find other riders when you need them.

Your nearest park and ride lot to Russell at Reston Station is located at Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station.
