The RideECO program helps employers reduce the cost of their employee's commute in three flexible ways:
- Employers can offer RideECO to employees in addition to salary, as part of their benefits package.
- Employers can allow employees to purchase RideECO benefits through a pre-tax payroll deduction. Employees can set aside up to $255 a month from federal income tax and FICA taxes, saving them hundreds of dollars over the course of the year. And, employers can save on the matching FICA taxes.
- Employers can give a portion of RideECO as a benefit, and allow employee to take a pre-tax payroll deduction for the remaining amount. It's the best of both worlds.
Getting started is simple. Just visit RideECO.org or contact RideECO at (215) 592-1800.
RideECO is a program of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.
