TransitChek

Information for: Full-Time Employees; Part-Time Employees

All employees are eligible to participate in the TransitChek program.  The program allows employees to direct up to $130 per month on a pre-tax basis from payroll checks to be used for mass-transit transportation expenses. Depending on an employee’s commuting needs, an Unlimited MTA Metro-Card, TransitChek Vouchers, or a Visa Debit Card are available options.

You may enroll by calling TransitCenter directly at 1-800-773-1327 or by enrolling over their secure website: www.tams.transitchek.com

In order to complete your enrollment, you will need to provide FIT's company code which is EAW76, and also the FIT employee ID number you were issued (8 digits beginning with @).

Please note that when you input your ID number in the system, you must replace the "@" symbol with a capitalized letter A.  There is a minimum waiting period of six weeks between the date of enrollment and when the first benefit is received.

Commuter Parking Benefits

The IRS allows you to elect up to $250 per month on a pre-tax basis to be used for park & ride commuter parking (this is in addition to the $130 allowed pre-tax for mass transit benefits).

Park and ride benefits cover the cost of parking at a facility from which you commute to work by transit. For example, if you drive to a railroad station and pay to park at the station parking lot or at a privately owned parking lot adjacent to the railroad station, the monthly cost of parking can be covered by TransitChek. In this case, you can arrange to have up to $250 per month of your salary set aside before taxes to pay for this expense. 

If the parking lot/facility accepts Visa cards, you may use your Quick Pay Visa card to pay for your parking benefits as well as for your mass transit tickets. If the parking lot/facility does not accept Visa cards, you may mail paper receipts along with a claim form to TransitCenter for reimbursement from your Transit account.

Note:  Commuter parking benefits cannot be co-mingled with mass transit benefits; please be sure you are electing the proper amount for each type of benefit.
