Passes for Employees
RRTA Sales Outlet Program allows employers to provide RRTA passes to their employees at their place of business. Employers can pay for the entire cost of the passes or pay a portion of the cost. The convenience of providing the passes at the employee’s place of work is an added bonus for employees. Also, there are tax benefits for both the employer and employee. To become an RRTA sales outlet, contact the Marketing Manager by calling 397-5613.
Other programs such as Commuter Services of South Central PA and RidECO vouchers offer other transportation alternatives for businesses. Check out each program for more details.
RidECO vouchers are offered by the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) and can be used to buy RRTA passes. It saves employers and commuters money because the program takes advantage of federal legislation that allows tax free dollars to pay for transit fares. To learn more contact DVRPC at 215-592-1800 or visit www.RidECO.org
Transit Tax Benefit
Section 132(f) of the Federal tax code enables employers to offer pre-tax purchase of up to $245 per month in qualified train and transit fares.
