This handbook from the Association for Commuter Transportation (ACT) provides recommendations on how to safely and efficiently return to your workplace as back to work efforts begin across the country.
The Beniversal® Prepaid Mastercard® and eTRAC® Prepaid Mastercard® provide you with convenient access to your mass transit and parking accounts. Here are a few quick tips to get started:
Add value to your ORCA card with your Beniversal Prepaid Mastercard or eTRAC Prepaid Mastercard through one of the following ways:
Get started by purchasing and registering your ORCA card
ORCA is accepted on Community Transit, Everett Transit, King County Metro Transit, Kitsap Transit, Pierce Transit, Sound Transit, Seattle Center Monorail and Washington State Ferries. Commuters can also use ORCA to pay vanpool fare for King County, Community Transit, Pierce Transit or Kitsap Transit.
Your Beniversal Prepaid Mastercard / eTRAC Prepaid Mastercard can be used for eligible Shared Rides (previously Lyft Line) services. When using your Card as the payment source, you will be assigned to qualifying vehicles. If you attempt to use it for regular trips, it will be declined.
Please Note: The home address on file in the Lyft app must match your home address on file with BRI.
The maximum monthly pre-tax limit for parking and mass transit is set by the IRS each year.
For 2020 (January 1, 2020 and after) the maximum pre-tax monthly amount is $270.
For 2021 (January 1, 2021 and after) the maximum pre-tax monthly amount is $270.
When limits increase, BRI and your employer should automatically adjust your pre-tax and after-tax deductions to reflect the new limits.
