Commute Smarter with Uber & WageWorks
How much does your daily commute cost you? If you’re looking for ways to reduce your monthly expenses, your commute is an excellent place to start. And we have some great news that will help you keep your hard-earned dollars for yourself.
We are thrilled to partner with WageWorks® a leading provider of Consumer-Directed Benefits in the United States. With WageWorks, commuters save money by using pretax earnings to pay for their eligible commuting expenses, such as bus and train rides. Now for the first time you can tap into savings on uberPOOL rides, as well.
Many commuters are already choosing to share a ride on uberPOOL every day, but those expenses can add up. Beginning today, commuters in New York City who have a WageWorks® Commuter Benefits Account can pay for uberPOOL rides with pre-tax dollars. That means, you can save up to 40% on your commute by using pretax dollars – and have more money for the things you care about.
This is a first-of-a-kind partnership for Uber and we look forward to making commuter benefits as a reliable option across other cities in the U.S. By making it easier and more affordable to carpool, we’re working toward our goal of getting more people in fewer cars.
