Commuter Choice Tax Benefit
This transit benefit program gives companies and their employees an opportunity to use pre-tax dollars to pay for bus, train or vanpool fares. The Internal Revenue Service Section 132(f) currently allows employers and/or employees to set aside funds each month before taxes for public transportation and vanpooling. Tax provisions allow parking costs to be taken as a tax-free fringe benefit for anyone who drives to work.
Best Workplace for Commuters
This innovative membership program provides national recognition and aligns your company with other leading employers who have developed employee commuter programs that reduce their impact on the environment and the company's bottom line. Employers that meet the National Standard of Excellence in commuter benefits can receive public recognition, access to web training and tools, recognition items to display achievement and more.
Pace Transit Supportive Guidelines
The Pace Transit Supportive Guidelines are created to encourage the coordination of transit service and real estate development in communities throughout the Northeastern Illinois in order to make every step of the commuter's trip accessible, efficient, safe and comfortable. Transit services and transit supportive development can provide a wide range of benefits across many sectors of a community. It is not simply the transit provider and rider who benefit; but also the municipalities, development community, non-transit riders and others that can gain economic, environmental and quality of life benefits.
