Get in the Transportation Fast Lane
"Especially during challenging economic times, when so many businesses are struggling, the CTAA Transportation to Work Toolkit is a valuable resource to build an employee transportation program that is a win-win for all."
-Ray LaHood, Transportation Secretary
The Transportation-to-Work Toolkit for the Business Community gives businesses the information they need now to assist their employees in realizing a timely, cost-efficient commute that promotes productivity at your business site and employee satisfaction.
Let these two-page fact sheets and examples of activities undertaken by employers nationwide guide you. Joblinks and your local transportation provider and transportation management association can also help you implement solutions that will impact your business' bottom line. Each approach is straightforward to launch and simple to manage.
Federal Commuter Tax Benefit Achieves Permanent Parity with Parking Benefit
In the Consolidated Appropriations Act, signed by President Obama on Dec. 18, 2015, the monthly commuter tax benefit achieved permanent parity with the monthly parking benefit that employers can offer. As of Jan. 1, 2016, the monthly maximum tax exclusion for transit or parking benefits will each be $255, subject to an annual inflation adjustment. The commuter pre-tax benefit applies to those who commute to work by public transit or by a vanpool that meets the IRS definition of a commuter highway vehicle. Learn more about the commuter tax benefit in Fact Sheet #6, "Tax Incentives for Commuters" of this Toolkit and check back here for updates.
