Commuter Pre-Tax Transit Program

To help you save money, University employees are able to enroll in pre-tax transit benefits. The cost for public transit fare is taken out of your pay check prior to calculating your taxable amount, lowering your taxable amount. How much lower depends on the individual's marginal federal income tax rate (the rate at which the last dollar of taxable income is taxed), which is affected by exemptions, filing status, family income, and possibly other items.

The University partners with PayFlex to administer commuter transit benefits. Visit the Human Resources webpage to learn more about the Commuter Pre-Tax Transit Program, including how to enroll.
