Save money on transit passes

Published February 27, 2014

UB faculty and staff, depending on their bargaining unit, may be eligible to take part in NYS-Ride, a program that allows state employees to pay for certain work-related transportation — including mass transit — expenses on a pre-tax basis.

NYS-Ride allows employees to save money by purchasing their transit passes — including NFTA passes serving all Metro bus and Metro Rail lines in Erie and Niagara counties — through pre-tax payroll deductions.

Visit the NYS-Ride website to determine eligibility and to sign up for the program.

NYS-Ride is sponsored by the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations as a result of collective bargaining and administered by WageWorks Inc.
