Transit Subsidy Information
Working alongside the San Mateo County Commute Alternatives Program, WageWorks administers the County's commuter subsidy program for public transit and vanpools. In order to obtain these subsidies, employees need to enroll and mantain their accounts through WageWorks.

Set It, Forget It
When you enroll, simply select your transit provider and type of pass. Every month, the Commute Alternatives Program contributes up to $75 automatically, and WageWorks uses it to pay for your transit pass. Your order is ongoing. Once you place it you do not need to return unless you want to change or cancel your order or one month.

Also check your monthly reminder emails for deadlines. If your commute plans changed, it's your responsibility to make changes through WageWorks (cut-off is every 10th of the month by 8:59 p.m. PST prior to the benefit month - for example Jan 10 for the February benefit month).

Please note: The CAP office, Clipper or your transit provider cannot notify WageWorks of any changes in your commute. You must contact WageWorks directly or update your order via your WageWorks online account.
