What are their benefits? Employer-sponsored debit and credit cards make it easier, faster and more convenient for employees to take advantage of pre-tax transit benefits offered through their employer. If you have a personal credit card on file and are enrolled in an authorized employer debit or credit card program, you can pay for all or part of your orders with your employer debit or credit card.

Where can I get one? Talk to your human resources department to find out if your employer offers a debit or credit card program for distribution of transit benefits.

How do I enter my card information? Employer debit or credit card information should be entered in the Employer Debit/Credit Cards information area only. Recurring orders may be declined in instances where information is improperly entered. Entering your employer debit or credit card information in the employer debit/credit card area will also allow you to split a payment with a personal credit card.

When you are ready to proceed, select an option below to add the debit or credit card provided by your employer to a new or existing CommuterDirect account.
