The transit benefit plays an important role in the way employers can directly impact their employees’ commuting habits; along with the positive impact on roadway congestion and improved air quality. Plus, increased participation in commuter benefits increases employers’ payroll tax savings. With this increase, employers can offer employees up to $245 per month in pre-tax transit/vanpool benefits. The change can save commuters with the longest and most costly commutes more than $900 per year on average in tax savings; this significant increase could also potentially encourage many more commuters to take public transportation, which would result in tremendous environmental benefit for America’s traffic congested cities.
