Transit Benefits Transit Benefits, with American Benefit Administrators, are a tax-favored program (Internal Revenue Code Section 132) that allows employees to set aside pre-tax money from their paychecks to pay for eligible transportation up to $265 per month (for plan years beginning in 2019). They are similar to the Dependent Day Care Reimbursement Account in that only the amount that has been deducted to date can be reimbursed to participants.

ELIGIBLE EXPENSES INCLUDE:

  • Mass transportation (such as via subway or bus) to your place of employment
  • Transportation to your place of employment via a vanpooling commuter vehicle. (Restrictions: Must seat at least six adults not including the driver. At least 80% of the vehicle’s mileage must be used to transport employees to and from their place of employment.)
