Commuter Benefits is Now the Law

If you have 50 or more full time employees, your business is required to provide Commuter Benefits to those workers.  Known as the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program, you can select one of the following options to offer to your employees:

  • Provide a subsidy for transit or vanpooling (up to $75 a month)
  • Provide a free or low cost bus, shuttle or vanpool directly for employees
  • Create your own program that is at least as effective as one of the above options

Your business is also required to register with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District each year.
