Switch your commute for a better tomorrow
We’ve teamed up with Intuit, the global financial platform, to help more companies take positive steps to reduce their carbon emissions. Small and medium sized businesses will enjoy special discounts and features when they sign up for commuter benefits.
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.
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. They’re even saving the planet when they make the switch to climate-friendly alternatives.
Help the environment while saving on payroll taxes.

Commuter Benefits Include
Pre-tax transit benefits includes bus, train, subway and ferry services. Edenred Benefits offers many options to pay for public transit such as our prepaid card, smart cards and transit passes.
Edenred Benefits offers a variety of pre-tax options to pay for parking including the prepaid card, cash reimbursement, and direct pay, where we can even pay parking providers on your behalf.
Along with traditional pre-tax options like public transit and parking, we also offer flexible post-tax commuting options like bike sharing, e-scooters, e-mopeds, and corporate shuttles. For those interested in purchasing their own ebikes, eScooters or eMopeds, our partner Ridepanda offers a solution for that too.
Calculate Your Savings
Employers save an average of 7.65% on payroll taxes annually. If 10 employees participate over 12 months, your company could save up to $5,000 annually.

How it works
Employees place orders by the 10th of the month for the following month’s benefits. (ie: For December benefits, orders must be placed by November 10th)
Employees will receive their products in the mail before the end of the month for the following benefit month. (ie: For December benefits, employees will receive their products on or before November 30th.)
Edenred will send the payroll deduction file monthly. Your payroll administrator will use it to set up employee deductions.
