I love the Express Lanes because it’s truly a love story. I commute on the Beltway and one of the things I commute for is going to and from my boyfriend’s house in Potomac. Oh, he’s my best friend and when we’re together, it’s kind of special. The Express Lanes has given me all kinds of time. I do it for love.

My commute is now safer and more predictable. I don’t worry that I will encounter traffic congestion that eats into the limited time I can spend with my Dad.

My commute would take over an hour. Now it takes 25 minutes. I use that time with my family. Family is my priority.

With my second child on the way and having to juggle doctor appointments and my son’s school activities, you can’t put a monetary amount on saving time.
