Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program
The Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program requires employers with 50 or more full-time employees in the Bay Area to offer commuter benefits to their employees. Employers must select one of four Commuter Benefit options to offer their employees.
Option 1: Pre-tax payroll deduction for transit or vanpool
Option 2: Direct subsidy for transit or vanpool
Option 3: Employer-provided transportation
Option 4: Alternative commuter benefit, designed for those who use other alternative commute modes like carpooling, bicycling, and walking.
Employers subject to the program were required to select and implement their program by September 30, 2014. For those that have not registered, contact our Solano Mobility Employer Program Coordinator for assistance or call 800-535-6883.
All Businesses Can Participate
The Solano Mobility Employer Program consists of a variety of programs using incentives to encourage active transportation and alternative modes of travel that can improve attendance and productivity and help decrease both traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
Providing alternative commute options for employees has many potential benefits including:
