Ride the Bus and Get a Tax Break

Effective July 1, 2007, as the result of legislative action, the University will be implementing a Pre-Tax Bus Pass option. This program is authorized under Section 132(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, known as the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century. Eligible University employees living and working on the island of O‘ahu will be given the opportunity to purchase monthly bus passes through payroll deduction, on a pre-tax basis, thereby saving on FICA, Federal and State income taxes.

The open enrollment period for the pre-tax bus pass program is from May 1, 2007 to June 15, 2007. You can find information on this program on at
