Commuter Benefits Assistance

Commuter benefits, or transportation fringe benefits, allow employees to use tax-free dollars on transit, vanpool, or qualified parking expenses under Section 132(f) of the IRS tax code. By offering these cost-effective fringe benefits, employers can save money on payroll taxes, attract and retain top talent, and help alleviate parking issues. Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) offers complimentary assistance to local organizations that want to enhance commuter benefits offered at their workplace. When commuter benefits are successfully implemented, they positively impact both the employer and the employee. ATP can help you choose the best program to meet your business needs and provide on-going support to ensure program success.
