Current Commuter Benefits Program

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.

The Commuter Benefits Program is for NYC government employees only and is offered by WageWorks, the City’s commuter benefit provider.

Members of the public, including businesses and their employees: get more information about the Commuter Benefits Law, or call 311. The Commuter Benefits Law requires certain businesses to offer their eligible employees a pre-tax transportation deduction.
