The JHU Commuting-to-Work program allows you to have pretax deductions taken from your pay to cover eligible expenses associated with your daily commute to work. You may elect a transit account (public transportation), parking account (non-JHU), or both. The amounts are excluded from your taxable income up to the amount allowed by the IRS.
For tax year 2022, the pretax spending limit for mass transit increased from $270 per month to $280 per month. The limit for non-JHU parking also increased to $280 per month.
WEX, the university's commuter benefits provider, offers a debit card to purchase transportation and non-JHU parking passes, or the ability to reimburse yourself via your online account or mobile app.
You do not need to wait for Annual Enrollment—you can sign up anytime to make your commute more convenient and affordable.
Make your election from the Benefits & Worklife homepage by clicking on the myChoices Health & Life Enrollment tab; select Life Events and then Commuter Benefits Program. The cost will automatically be deducted from your paycheck and applied to your WEX debit card.
