NYS-Ride is a negotiated benefit program sponsored by the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations (GOER) and administered by WageWorks, Inc., which provides New York State employees with the opportunity to pay for certain work-related transportation expenses on a pre-tax basis. NYS-Ride allows you to save money on your eligible transportation costs. You pay for these expenses through pre-tax payroll deductions and save money each month.
When you make pre-tax purchases for your eligible commuting expenses through NYS-Ride, you save money each month because no federal, state, city income, Social Security, or Medicare taxes are withheld from the amount you set aside, up to the pre-tax limits set by the federal government.
WageWorks purchases public transportation fare media (such as bus, subway and vanpool passes, and fare cards) from transit authorities and will mail your selected fare media directly to your home address. Or use your WageWorks Commuter Card.
