Transportation Reimbursement Accounts

Your commute won’t take less time.
But it will cost less money.

To attract and retain employees, many companies offer the added value of commuter benefits through Transportation Reimbursement Accounts. These enable you to use pre-tax salary dollars towards work-related commuting costs like transit passes, van-pool commuting and qualified parking. In 2017, this allows you to save:

 • Up to $255 per month for van pooling and transit passes
 • Up to $255 per month for parking

Best of all, the balance in your Transportation Reimbursement Account can be rolled over from month to month and year to year while you are actively employed with your company so you won’t lose your unused funds.

Ready to save? Let’s get going.

You can always change your contribution amounts on a quarterly basis during the plan year.
