Use Your Pre-Tax Commuter Benefits for All Line Rides

NOTE: Original post from January 2017 updated to include additional information and cities covered.

Between spending hours on the road, navigating traffic, and trying to get to work on time, commuting can be stressful. Drivers in the US spend an average of 24 hours per month behind the wheel. And with more than 76% of Americans driving alone to work everyday, we know there’s a better way to commute.

Last year, we introduced the ability to use pre-tax commuter benefits dollars for Line rides in four cities. Today, we’re excited to expand this offering to 14 new cities to to help make commuting easier and more affordable for more passengers. Whether you’re commuting to or from the office or connecting with your local transit station, you can now save more than 35% by using pre-tax dollars for Line rides in all 18 cities where Line is available.

When you use this capability, you’ll join the 42% of passengers currently commuting with Lyft. And remember — Line is always more affordable than standard Lyft, and you’ll get a door-to-door commute on a schedule that works for you.

To get started, just link your commuter benefits card to your Lyft account.

When we commute together, we can help reduce the number of empty seats on the road, and ultimately reduce pollution and free up more space on our streets. Thanks for sharing the ride!

How It Works

 Add your commuter benefits prepaid card as a payment method in the Lyft app. Then, use the commuter dollars on your card to pay for your Line rides, whether they’re a commute subsidy provided by your employer or an amount you set aside pre-tax from your paycheck.

 You’ll be matched with a vehicle than can fit up to six passengers, all traveling the same way as you.
