Transit Benefit

Going Your Way.
Save big – however you get to work.
Enroll in CUNY’s Expanded Commuter Benefits Program

Do you commute? Chances are you can save through the Commuter Benefits Program.

Train. Bus. Subway. Paratransit. Parking your car at the station.  However you ride, your new, expanded Commuter Benefits Program – presented by The City University of New York and administered by WageWorks – will give you more and better ways to save.

Expanded transit coverage

This program works for virtually any transit system in the Tri- State or Regional areas.  No matter what part of the city you live and work, you’re covered.  Use it for:

► MTA NYCT, Long Island Railroad, Metro-North Railroad, NJ Transit, PATH, and NY Waterway, to name a few…
► Paratransit and the MTA’s Access-A-Ride program
► Parking at or near public transit to commute to work

Round-trip savings

Saving is simple.  When you sign up, you receive a personal commuter account funded on a pre-tax basis through payroll deductions from your pay.  Because the deductions reduce your payroll withholding taxes and provide you with tax-free funds to pay your expenses you can save as much as 40% off the cost of your commute through the program.

More Information

The Expanded Commuter Benefits Program is administered through the Office of Human Resources, University Benefits Office.  For further information explore the links on this website or contact your College Benefit Officer.
