What is the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program? Employers with 50 or more full-time employees within the Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s geographic boundaries are required to register and offer commuter benefits to their employees.
What should I do now? Register your company’s benefit information with the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program. Companies that register will receive annual follow-up emails as a reminder to confirm or update the data provided in the original registration.
Pursuant to the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program, as of 9/30/2014, employers with 50 or more full-time employees within the Bay Area Air Quality Management District geographic boundaries are required to register and offer commuter benefits to their employees. Employers who thereafter reach 50 full-time employees will have 6 months from the date they become subject to the program to comply.
Employers who registered with the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program last year should be on the lookout for an annual follow-up e-mail requesting that they confirm or update the data they provided in their original registration. The e-mail will come about a year after the employer first registered and will be from either the Bay Area Air Quality Management District or the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. A link will be provided in the e-mail, where employers may go to confirm or update their information. Employers will have 30 days from the receipt of the e-mail within which to submit the report.
