Good News for Montgomery County Employers and Commuters in the New Year!

Good news for commuters who use public transportation or vanpool. Starting January 1, the federal transit benefit for public transportation will nearly double to $255 per month.

Now transit riders and vanpoolers will have the same tax benefits as those who drive and park.

The increase, approved by Congress last month and signed by President Obama, permanently raised the pre-tax and tax-free commuter benefit making it more affordable to use public transportation. These benefits apply to those commuters who take MTA Commuter Bus, Metro bus, Metro rail, Ride On and vanpools.

To learn more about setting up a transit benefits program and Maryland's Commuter Choice Tax Credit, contact Commuter Services by phone, 240-777-8380, or by email, mcdot.commuterservices@montgomerycountymd.gov.
