Make a change, one commute at a time.
There are many reasons to change how you commute, such as to relieve stress, save money, help the environment and to get healthy. We can help you find the right fit. With TRAFFIX, you’ll discover alternatives to driving alone that fit your lifestyle.
- Carpool with co-workers, neighbors or friends.
- Vanpool for short- and long-distance commutes.
- Transit including the light rail, ferry, train and bus.
- Bike/walk to work for your health and the health of the planet.
- Telework one or more days per week.
Through programs like the IRS Qualified Transportation Fringe Benefit Section 132(f), employees can qualify for financial incentives to find an alternative to driving alone. Employees can receive up to $255/month for transit, vanpool or parking expenses, and $20/month for bicycle reimbursement. Speak to your Human Resources Department for more information.
The Transportation Incentive Program (TIP) and the Mass Transportation Benefit Program (MTBP) are federally-subsidized benefits that cover vanpools and all transit in the Hampton Roads area, including the local and express buses, light rail and ferry services. The benefit currently pays up to $255/month. Participants can save as much at $1,500/year on commuting expenses! Vanpools are also eligible to receive TIP and MTBP monies.
