The Economic Downturn Brings Increased Opportunities for Shared Ride Commuting
Over the last year, working families have seen their savings shrink and, in many cases, their job security threatened due to this whole pandemic scene. Finding ways to save money and still meet daily living expenses is a hallmark of these times. Many employees have significantly cut down on driving or given up their cars completely and chosen public transit and other methods of ridesharing to commute to work.
According to a study, use of public transit in 2020 reached its highest level since 1956. In addition to the cost savings they gain through reduced fuel and parking expenses, these commuters are promoting public transit access, and reducing the environmental impacts from carbon gas emissions and traffic congestion.
Financial Incentives for Employers
Forward thinking employers who are worried about the negative impact of the economic downturn on their employees recognize that a cost-effective way to help workers is through the Qualified Transportation Benefit. The benefit gives employers a tool they can use to subsidize transportation for their workers during these lean times to ease commuting costs.
Businesses and employees that support and use shared ride travel can now claim larger tax benefits.
