Park and Ride in Virginia

Park and Ride Design Guidelines (NEW)

In December 2017,  the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) released Park and Ride Design Guidelines to provide a user-friendly framework from which users can make informed decisions regarding Pand R lot layout, services, amenities, and green infrastructure in developing or retrofitting Pand R lots in Virginia. The Pand R Design Guidelines are intended to complement the VDOT Road Design Manual which provides specific guidance and requirements for ADA parking and accessibility, drop-off and pick-up areas, bus loading/unloading, and other important requirements. Note: the Road Design Manual is only viewable in Internet Explorer.

The conversion means new rules of the road and changes for travelers who currently use the HOV facility. Carpools and vanpools will need three or more people in the vehicle and an E-ZPass Flex set to HOV mode to travel toll-free on the 95 Express Lanes.
