Commuter Spending Account
The Commuter Spending Account (CSA) lets you set aside pre-tax dollars to pay eligible mass transit and/or parking expenses. The program, administered by PayFlex, offers the convenience of automatic payroll contributions and a commuter card. (PayFlex took over the administration of the Commuter Spending Account from WageWorks January 1, 2021.) You can enroll in, change or stop participating in commuter accounts at any time through the myXPO Portal or by calling the XPO Benefit Center. (Family members are not eligible.)
Contribution limits are set by the IRS each year, typically in October or November. The 2021 limits are:
- $270 per month for transit expenses
- $270 per month for parking expenses
If you enroll, you will receive a debit card you can use to pay for eligible expenses. Keep in mind:
- You must use the debit card for all transit expenses. The card can only be used at authorized transit authorities, kiosks, vending machines and designated retail locations that sell only transit media. It cannot be used at gift shops, newsstands or pharmacies that sell other products.
- Where possible, use the card for parking expenses. If the card is not accepted, you can pay out of pocket and file a claim for reimbursement.
