RideECO is the commuter benefit program from DVRPC. ECO means Easy Commute Options that can save you time and money.
RideECO is Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission ’s commuter voucher program that allows commuters and employers to save by putting pre-tax dollars towards fares on many modes of public transportation, including the vanpool service vRide . Employers save money by driving down payroll taxes with every dollar a commuter deducts. The program pays for itself and everyone gains from it.
How it works:
- Employer enrolls in RideECO.
- Employee decides how much money they want to set aside, pre-tax, for public transportation each month.
- Employee buys RideECO vouchers, transit passes, or loads a Stored-Value Card with the pre-tax dollars.
- The government only takes its share from the lower salary so employers can save more than thousands of dollars a year, depending on participation.
