Offsite Parking/ MBTA

Through the Qualified Transportation Benefits Program (QTBP), you are eligible for a pre-tax benefit program that includes both offsite parking and transit expenses. QTBP is administered by Benefit Strategies. 

Under current federal law, the following amounts may be contributed to the accounts to reimburse employees for qualified transportation expenses. Funds cannot be comingled or transferred between accounts.

  • 2018 Pre-tax Federal and State Parking Expense Account - $260/month
  • 2018 Pre-tax Mass Transit Expense Account - $260 for Federal and $135 for State
  • Benefit Strategies provides a FLEXEXPRESS© card that looks and works like a typical debit card, making the process as easy as possible. There are no up-front payments, and charges are automatically deducted from your account. Transit passes should be bought online or at the point of service with the debit card. No manual claims can be submitted for the transit account. If a parking vendor does not accept MasterCard or Visa, you can still submit a manual claim to Benefit Strategies for quick reimbursement. They guarantee prompt processing for all completed parking claims.
