Commuter dollars/pretax salary

Adobe’s Commute Alternatives Program helps employees find alternative transportation to and from work and offers subsidies to help with the cost:

  • $150/month subsidy for transit/vanpooling and transit parking, or
  • $20/month subsidy for biking
  • The commuter dollars provided by Adobe are free of any payroll implications and are not linked to your paycheck. The money is provided for you to use as needed.
  • The Adobe commuter dollars count toward the IRS monthly pretax commuter benefits cap of $315 for transit. Only orders that exceed Adobe’s $150 subsidy will be deducted pretax from your paycheck, up to the $315 monthly cap. Amounts exceeding the $315 monthly cap will require payment via personal credit card.

Place a commuter pass, voucher, or debit card order with Commuter Check Direct. Use company ID 1100.
