Ride-and-Save- Broward County Transit's Pre-Tax Commuter Benefit Program

Broward County Transit (BCT) offers employers Ride-and-Save, a pre-tax commuter benefit program that provides employees and employers an exciting way to save money. Employees can save money on their commuting costs by purchasing BCT bus passes with pre-tax dollars, while employers can save money on their payroll taxes. It is a transit win-win opportunity for everyone. BCT’s new Ride-and-Save program educates employees and employers about their commuter options and how to take advantage of this Federal program.

Ride-and-Save provides the following commuter benefit options to assist with transit expenses:

Employer-Paid Benefit: Employers can pay for their employees to commute on BCT by purchasing a 31-Day bus pass. Employers get a tax deduction for the expense.

Employee-Paid Benefit: Employers can allow their employees to purchase a BCT 31-Day bus pass using pre-tax income when they provide a pre-tax deduction program for their transit costs.

Fare Share Benefit: Employers can provide a portion of the cost of a BCT 31-Day Adult bus pass. The employee also pays a portion using pre-tax income when the employer offers a pre-tax deduction program.

Employers who are participating in Ride-and-Save have found the program to be beneficial, not only to attract new employees, but also to retain them, develop a stronger workforce, and assist those employees with transportation challenges.

The program also provides an opportunity for companies to enhance their ‘Green’ initiatives, because employees riding BCT are helping reduce air pollution which helps the environment.
Broward County Transit provides official acknowledgement to participating businesses who show environmental support through transit, with a framed certificate for “Going Green with BCT” program.

The Transportation Equity Act (TEA-21), established in 1998, amended the federal tax code to create financial incentives relating to commuter benefits for employers and employees. This program helps business commuters who use an alternative mode of transportation to and from work to save money. Employees are eligible to be subsidized for their transit costs, or they can set aside up to $230 a month of their pre-tax income towards various commuting costs.  More information about this program can be found under Section 132(f), Qualified Transportation Fringe Benefits.
