The Commuter Check for Bicycling program supports the expansion of the Qualified Transportation Fringe Benefit (IRS Tax Code Section 132(f)) to allow bicycle commuters to receive $20.00 per month as a subsidy to pay for the cost of commuting via bicycle. This includes the cost of bicycles, bicycling equipment and accessories, and storage unit costs.
Employers can offer the bicycling benefit as a subsidy in addition to salary. The subsidy for the bicycling benefit is tax deductible for the company.
Important note: Currently the bicycle benefit cannot be combined with the transit or parking benefit. On any given month, employees who opt for the bicycle benefit cannot take advantage of the transit or parking benefit. We will update our information were this restriction in the legislation to change.
