Save $ with Pre-Tax Transit Benefits

4-27-14 transit benefits rally photo --patty huttonThe average New Yorker can save $443 every year with pre-tax transit benefits–a hefty savings when the fare keeps going up.

Help us pass Council Member Garodnick’s Affordable Transit Act, which would help hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers access this transit tax break by requiring employers of 20 or more people to offer the benefit to their staff.

It’s a win-win: riders get a break, and employers save money on taxes.

On Sunday, April 27th, we rallied with Council Member Garodnick and transit advocates in support of this legislation. Please see our press release here.

See our report that shows how this important legislation could open up transit benefits to as many as 605,000 New Yorkers who don’t currently receive them.
