Transit Program

Share |

Employees may purchase a monthly T Pass or pay for parking expenses through the Qualified Transportation Benefits Program (QTBP) administered by Benefit Strategies. The QTBP is a pre-tax benefit program that includes both Parking and Transit expenses. All benefitted employees are eligible to enroll in either or both plans. The monthly fee for this program is $1.50 and will be taken on a pre-tax basis. There is only one fee even if you enroll in both plans.

If you wish to purchase a monthly pass on a pre-tax basis, you must enroll through Benefit Strategies at www.benstrat.com - click on the link "Commonwealth Transportation Benefits."

Once you have enrolled, you will receive a packet from Benefit Strategies regarding the program including information on changing or stopping your election. A VISA debit card will be issued to you under separate cover to purchase your T Pass. If you have a Charlie Card, you may continue to use the same card. Just take the debit card and the Charlie Card to the purchasing agent to transfer the funds from the debit card to the Charlie Card.
