The 495 Express Lanes partnered with SAIC and regional transportation organizations to offer Tysons Corner employees a transportation fair in July 2012.
495 Express Lanes team members attend community fairs, festivals and other events throughout the region to educate travelers about how the Express Lanes will work.
The 4th annual Keep Tysons Moving took place on September 21st in McLean. At the event, people in the Tysons area learned how the 495 Express Lanes and Dulles Metrorail will affect the region and how employers can prepare their employees for the transportation improvements coming to Tysons Corner. The event included executive briefings on the 495 Express Lanes, Dulles Metrorail, and new Fairfax Connector bus routes. Representatives from several regional transportation organizations were there to give information on carpooling, vanpooling and other local transportation options.
To kick off the opening of the 495 Express Lanes – which opened on November 17 – as well as the start of the holiday shopping season, Santa Claus traveled on the 495 Express Lanes to travel to Tysons Corner Center.
On Friday, November 16, the day before the 495 Express Lanes opened to the public, Santa took an inaugural drive from Braddock Road to the new Express Lanes exit at Westpark Drive to get directly to his winter wonderland house inside Tysons Corner Center. In place of his reindeer, Santa traveled on the lanes in a model 2.5 Tesla Roadster convertible.
Express Lanes project partners, transportation officials and elected officials gathered in Tysons Corner on Nov. 13, 2012 to celebrate the project's completion.
On June 27, 2013 attendees at the 5th annual Keep Tysons Moving event received updates on area transportation options and improvements from the Virginia Department of Transportation, 95 and 495 Express Lanes, Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project and Fairfax County.

Representatives from several regional transportation organizations were there to give information on carpooling, vanpooling and other local transportation options.
