What are Commuter Benefits?

Commuter benefits are a great benefit that save both employers and employees money. The benefit allows employees to set aside tax-free money to pay for their commuting expenses, and can be used for mass transit, rideshares and qualified paid parking. Employees get in on the savings too. By offering a commuter benefit to your employees, your company can save on payroll taxes each year.

Employers

Employee engagement is top of mind for today’s benefit administrators. No one wants an unengaged team — it’s less profitable for the company, and employee turnover can be extremely high. Offering a commuter benefit will boost employee loyalty, attract new talent and save your company money.

Weather doesn’t have as significant an impact on commuting as you think as more people drive to work than use transit where the weather is warm.
