The Commuter Benefits Program is designed to help JSG staff employees save time and money when they use public transit for their commute to work. The best part? It works for all public transportation, such as train, subway, bus, vanpool, etc. As part of the program, funds are deducted weekly from employees’ paychecks on a pre-tax basis and transferred to a commuter account.
With funds loaded onto a commuter card, employees can then use the card to pay for their daily commute to work. The program is available to all staff employees at any time during their employment with JSG.
