CCSF Pre-Tax Commuter
Benefits Program



Save between 25 and 40% on your transit and vanpool expenses through pre-tax deductions. You save because the money you use to pay for your commute is deducted from your paycheck before taxes are taken out. San Francisco commuters typically save between $200 and $1,000 a year.

Calculate Your Savings


The great thing about the CCSF Pre-Tax Commuter Benefits Program is that it covers just about every possible way you can travel to and from work, such as riding the bus, light rail, regional rail, streetcar, trolley, subway or ferry. It can also include your parking expenses if you park at a BART or Caltrain station as part of your commute.


You have complete control over the amount of money deducted from your paycheck, and can change or cancel your monthly deductions at any time. Your pre-tax money can be used to pay for expenses on all major Bay Area transit lines.

REFUND POLICY: Federal regulations generally prohibit any refund of pre-tax dollars that an employee has elected to have deducted from his or her wages and used to pay for transit, vanpool or parking charges. Excess or unused pre-tax dollars must be used to pay for future transit passes, vanpool charges or parking fees or you forfeit the money. All debit card balances and vouchers must be used before the expiration specified on the card or voucher or the date specified by the program administrator, WageWorks.
