Helping employers help employees ride Metro. The Transportation Equity Act benefits employers, employees, public transportation and, ultimately, every commuter in the great St. Louis area.

Metro’s Commuter Advantage Program – Advantageous for All

The Transportation Equity Act is a provision of the Internal Revenue Code that allows favorable tax treatment for employers that help their employees ride Metro. Under Section 132(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, an employer can deduct up to $245 per month per employee when they pay for their employees’ commute to and from work on Metro by offering the cost of a Metro transit pass. The employer can deduct these costs as business expenses, and the employees do not have to report the perk as income. In addition, employers are able to offer the cost of a transit pass to employees on a pre-tax basis. Advantages to employers include both a tax deduction for the expense, as well as savings on payroll taxes, FICA, disability insurance and payments into 401(k) plans.

More than 100 area employers offer Metro Transit Passes as a workplace benefit to more than 6,500 employees each month.
