Section 132 (f) of federal tax law allows employees to reduce their commuting costs by up to 40%, while helping employers save 10% or more on payroll taxes. Employees use tax-free dollars to pay for their commuting expenses. The maximum tax-free discount that can be provided to each employee for transit is $125 per month.

You can use your commuter checks for the following:

  • Purchase a new bicycle
  • Buy a lock, helmet, lights
  • Buy fenders or other parts in prep for winter riding
  • Pay to have your bike tuned up for safe riding

Commuter checks cannot be redeemed for cash, and no cash back can be provided when paying with commuter checks.
