As employee of the City of New York, you are eligible for using your pre-tax and post-tax payroll deductions to cover certain public transportation costs through the Commuter Benefits Program. The program is offered by WageWorks, the City’s commuter benefits provider, and works throughout the New York tri-state area.
The payroll deductions are taken from the first two paychecks of each month. In months with three pay periods there are no transit deductions taken from the third paycheck. You can always check your balance on the WageWorks website.
