Using Your Card

The WageWorks Commuter Card is a convenient payment method tied to your WageWorks commuter benefit account(s). You decide how much money to load onto your card each month to cover your monthly commuting costs. Depending on your employer’s plan setup, funds are loaded on your WageWorks Commuter Card on either a pay period basis or once a month.

The WageWorks Commuter Card makes it quick and easy to pay for eligible commuting expenses. Use the card to buy virtually any type of monthly public transit pass, including bus, light rail, regional rail, streetcar, vanpool, subway, and ferry. If your company offers a WageWorks Commuter Parking Account, you may also use the card to pay for a wide variety of parking options.

It’s easy—just swipe and go! When you swipe your card at checkout, choose "credit" (even though it isn't a credit card).
