Don’t Miss the Benefits of Commuting!
Back to the office yet? Or maybe you never stopped going? Either way, why not save some money and leave the driving to us! You can save up to $900 per year by using pre-tax dollars to pay for your NJ TRANSIT tickets and passes, including one-way tickets, monthly passes and our popular FlexPass!
The Federal Government allows employers to set aside a pre-tax commuter benefit of $270 per month for their employees to pay for public transportation, and an additional $270 per month for parking at a train or light rail station, or a bus park & ride, all while reducing your federal taxable income!
Additionally, thanks to legislation signed into law by Governor Murphy, New Jersey employers with at least 20 employees are required to offer their employees a pre-tax transportation fringe benefit.
How do you take advantage of this great offer? First, check with your employer to see if they offer a commuter pre-tax benefit. If not, let them know they can opt-in to the NJ TRANSIT Bulk Sales program or one of the programs offered by third party providers.
You can receive this benefit in the form of transit provider-specific passes or universally accepted vouchers and debit cards. Then, enjoy convenient and comfortable NJ TRANSIT bus, rail and/or light rail service to and from your workplace!
