Commuter Benefits

Do you want to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your dollars? Are you tired of traffic delays and tie-ups on your commute to work? Would you like to ease your commute and make it less stressful?

Well, Synergis would like to help you.

To help save money on commuting costs and provide a stress-free way for employees to arrive at work on time, Synergis has implemented a tax-free commuter benefit program. With this benefit, all employees who commute to work by public transit (bus, rail, or ferry) or vanpool can pay their fare with pre-tax dollars. The federal tax code allows employees to exclude up to $255 per month ($3,060 per year) in transit or vanpool costs from their taxable income.

Please see the Synergis Commuter Benefits Program explaining how the program works along with the enrollment form. To enroll, complete and return the Enrollment Form by the 6th of the month. Enrollment requests received by the 6th of the month will be effective the 1st of the following month. You are able to enroll or make changes to your existing enrollment each month.

In addition to saving money, by commuting to work by transit or vanpool you can avoid traffic congestion and help protect the environment.
