Corporate Transit Benefit Program
The job market today is tight, which means that businesses constantly compete to
get and keep good employees. What kinds of benefits does your company offer your
potential or current employees? VIA can work with you to develop a new transit benefit
that can make a big difference to your bottom line.
There are many ways to offer a transit benefit program through VIA. Here are the
EZ Ride program
An annual pass program in the form of a sticker applied to an employee’s company photo ID. This pass entitles
EZ Riders to ride all of VIA’s mainline bus and streetcar service for no additional
cost. This program offers the convenience of using existing photo ID and not having
to manage monthly passes.
- Provide annual pass for all employees
- Provide annual
pass for selected employees
Cost is $76 per year for every employee on your payroll. Government agencies pay $56 per year.
Must have at least 25 employees for this option.
Pay $365 per year for each employee you select to be on the program
For both options, stickers can be transferred if an employee leaves your company.
- Subsidize all or a portion of the cost for a monthly bus passes
- Offer monthly bus passes for sale on-site with no subsidy
- Passes are issued on consignment so you only pay for what you sell
- VIA currently sells nearly 6,000 passes monthly through this program
The BusinessPass program is very simple. Every month VIA delivers a number of monthly
Big Passes to participating businesses on consignment. Each business then provides
the passes to their employees at cost or at a reduced rate, depending on whether
the company wishes to subsidize the passes. At the end of the month, the company
just pays for the passes that have been issued to employees.
