FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A Parking & Transit Account allows you to use tax-free dollars to pay for monthly parking lot fees and mass transit programs (i.e. Bus Pass).

Unlike the Flexible Spending Account (FSA) plans, this program does not include a “use it or lose it penalty”. Any unused funds will carry forward to the next plan year in which you are an active participant.

You can use a Parking & Transit Account to pay for your share of expenses for commuting to and from work, reimbursable up to the monthly statutory or plan limit for:

Parking:
  • Parking your vehicle in a facility that is near your place of work
  • Parking at a location from where you commute to work (such as the cost of parking in a lot near to the bus station so you can continue your commute to work)
Mass Transit:
  • Expenses include costs for any pass, token, fare card, voucher, or other item that entitles you to use mass transit for the purpose of traveling to or from work (i.e. Bus Pass)

Please check with either your employer or ProService Hawaii if you are eligible for this benefit.

Per IRS tax rules, the following are not eligible to participate:

  • S Corp shareholders above the 2% ownership level and immediate family members
