HOV and Carpool Discounts

Save Money When You Travel with a Passenger
Drivers with one or more passengers qualify for HOV discounts on the TEXpress Lanes and the future HOV/Express Lanes.

Motorcycles, carpools and most vanpools are eligible to receive HOV discounts on all TEXpress Lanes and future HOV/Express Lanes. 

TEXpress Lanes—including those on LBJ, NTE, I-30 and the DFW Connector—offer a 50% HOV discount from 6:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Drivers with one or more passengers pay the posted toll prices at all other times of the day and on the weekends. 

HOV drivers who use HOV/Express Lanes, such as the 635 East HOV/Express Lanes, pay zero toll cost 24/7 through the Drive On TEXpress platform. 

To qualify for HOV discounts, you'll need at least two people (including you) in your vehicle and a TollTag, TxTag or EZ TAG on your windshield. You must also activate your HOV status via the Drive On TEXpress mobile app or website at least 15 minutes prior to entering the TEXpress Lanes or HOV/Express Lanes.
