Share

We wanted to remind employers that the Transportation Benefits Program Act is effective starting January 1, 2024

This means that any covered employer that have 50 or more covered workers in these locations (See list here) must provide the transportations benefits.

The transit benefit must comply with federal rules for qualified transportation fringe benefits. A transit pass is any pass, token, care card, and the like entitling the employee to take public transit. Participating transit programs may include those offered by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) or the Regional Transportation Authority.

For additional information see our previous article here
For the complete act: Transportation Benefits Program Act.
