Commuter Benefits Program FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions - Commuter Benefits Program

What is the Commuter Benefits Program?

The Commuter Benefits Program helps improve air quality and reduce traffic congestion by promoting the use of alternative commute modes such as transit, ridesharing, bicycling, and walking. The program accomplishes this by increasing the number of employers who provide commuter benefits to their employees.

As of September 30, 2014, Bay Area employers with 50 or more full-time employees within the Air District’s geographic boundaries are required to register and offer commuter benefits to their employees in order to comply with Air District Regulation 14, Rule 1. Employers must select one of four Commuter Benefit options to offer their employees. For more information, visit 511.org and select the Commuter Benefits Program link.
