Commuter Benefits

Benefits that go a long way to make your employees feel good about going to work.

It’s a more cost-effective way for your employees to pay for parking and public transportation with pre-tax dollars. And it’s a simple and effective way for you to reward your employees.

Transportation Reimbursement Plans, also known as Commuter Assistance Programs, are cafeteria plans that can offer valuable tax benefits to both you and your employees.

For maximum impact, these do need to be properly managed and administered, as well as being fully regulated and compliant. We can help!

 

Help your commuters defray the cost of coming to work each day:

Qualified parking

Qualified parking is parking you provide to your employees on or near your business premises. It also includes parking on or near the location from which your employees commute to work using mass transit, commuter highway vehicles or carpools. It doesn't include parking at or near your employee's home.

Transit passes

Transit passes include any passes, tokens, fare cards, vouchers or similar items that allow employees to ride free of charge (or at a reduced rate) on mass transit or in a vehicle that seats at least seven adults (including the driver).

Vanpooling

Vanpooling is transportation between the employee’s residence and place of employment in a commuter highway vehicle that seats at least seven adults (including the driver).
