Save on Commuting Costs

Metra commuters can save hundreds of dollars on commuting costs through a pre-tax benefit plan at work. Thanks to a late 2015 Congressional action employers can offer pre-tax transit benefits. The transit benefit is an IRS approved program to reduce costs of commuting and allows employees to set aside up to $255.00 every month for Metrta, bus, vanpool or other public transit method.

Similar to health savings accounts, transit benefit programs allow all employees to opt-in or out according to their needs and never penalizes them for not using the funds.
