NYS Employees Program
The NYS-Ride program, administered by Edenred, which allows New York State employees to receive pre-tax benefits through payroll deduction, a savings of up to 40% on public transportation fare media. New York State Employees can learn more and sign up at NYS-Ride.
Share the cost
The employer pays a portion of the cost and the employee pays the remaining portion before taxes, giving both a tax savings.
The employer pays the full cost of transit passes. The employee gets a free bus pass to commute to work and the employer deducts the amount from their taxable payroll. The cost of commuter benefits is a tax deductible business expense.
