What are Commuter Benefits?

Commuter benefits give employees the opportunity to use tax-free dollars on commuting costs and keep more of what they earn in their paycheck. Companies that offer commuter benefits
also save money by reducing payroll taxes. Watch this video and see how your company and employees can take advantage of huge savings.

How Commuter Benefits Work

When an employee enrolls in our commuter benefits program, they can pay for their commuting costs with pre-tax money, up to the current IRS tax limit of $280 / month. 

Commuter benefits include parking and transit benefits, as well as shared mobility options such as biking, bike sharing, e-scooter sharing, ridesharing services and corporate shuttles.
