Save Smarter with Commuter Benefits
Pre-tax savings on transit, parking and more.
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. Employers get in on the savings too. By offering a commuter benefit to your employees, your company can save on payroll taxes each year.
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.Learn More
