Check out how SmartBenefits can save you money

SmartBenefits

SmartBenefits is a program provided by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) that allows employers to transfer funds directly onto a SmarTrip Card each month for their individual employees.  This can be done as a direct employee benefit or through pre-tax funds that can then be used on bus, rail, vanpools, or commuter parking. This saves not only the employee but the employer money by saving tax dollars they would otherwise be paying on those funds.

To learn more about getting started or applying for SmartBenefits visit http://www.wmata.com/business/employer_fare_program/ or contact Access Tysons, and we can help you get started!
