Know All Your Travel Options

To further reduce the potential for travel delays, Fairfax County is urging employers to allow telework and the use of flexible work schedules whenever possible. There are also more than 4,000 parking spaces available at various Park-and-Ride facilities across Fairfax County that are open to carpoolers and sluggers (with access to HOV and HOT lanes), and many provide convenient express or regular bus service to Arlington and Washington, D.C. Most of these facilities offer FREE parking.

Expanded carpool, vanpool and telework incentives are available beginning this month for commuters and employers along the I-66 corridor through programs sponsored by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and local partners as part of the Transform 66 Outside the Beltway project.
