Transit Benefits


Metro subsidies are a financial incentive to encourage employees to use public transportation to get to and from work. You are entitled to the subsidy as long as you use public transportation for your work commute on:

  • Metro subway/bus
  • Virginia Railway Express (VRE)
  • MARC trains
  • Other eligible commuter buses, and vanpools

The amount of the subsidy equals the actual amount paid for public transportation, not to exceed a set amount per month (currently $130/month).

Visit the Office of Space and Building Management (OSBM) website for more information about metro subsidies.

Visit the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority website for more information about metro services.
