Using transit gives you the opportunity to do something good for Long Island while doing something good for your finances. In addition to reducing harmful emissions and making our communities better places to live and work, using pre-tax dollars to pay for your commute can save you up to 40% annually in commuting costs.

|Monthly commuter expenses||$260|

Enrolling is easy. All you have to do is sign-up at your company in a pre-tax transit benefit program offered by TransitChek, WageWorks, CommuterCheck, TotalBen, WiredCommute, Swipe-N-Save or other provider. If your company doesn't currently offer this benefit, check out the Employer section of this Web site and encourage your employer to do the same.
If you'd like someone to contact your company, call 516-242-8121 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the company name and contact(s) and we'll share the benefits of this great program with them.
Good for you. Good for the environment.
