Transit Pass Program for Bus and Metrolink Participants

The County's Transportation Expense Program allows employees to purchase transit bus passes on a pre-tax basis through payroll deduction from Riverside Transit Agency (RTA) (serving western Riverside County), Omnitrans (serving western San Bernardino County) and SunLine (serving Coachella Valley).

The cost of the bus pass is spread out over 24 pay periods and any County employee is eligible for this Program! Regular and Senior/Disability passes are available for purchase. Simply complete a Transit Pass Authorization Form and you may either fax it to us at (951) 955-1181 or scan and email it to iCommute@rivco.org

METROLINK TRANSIT PASS - NEW!!

County employees interested in purchasing daily, weekly and monthly passes on a pre-tax basis to ride the Metrolink may do so by participating in the Transit Pass Program. Whether you want to take the train only 5 days a month and you want to purchase 5 daily passes, or a monthly pass if you wish to take the train every day, or even a weekly pass will suit your needs if you wish to take the train for 7 consecutive days, simply visit the Metrolink Price Finder section and enter your origination and destination locations. Once that information is entered, Metrolink will provide you with your ticket options and prices. Be advised that one-way tickets are not eligible for the Transit Pass Program as a minimum of 5 days a month are required in order to participate.

Like the bus transit pass option above, the cost of daily, weekly and monthly passes are also spread out over 24 pay periods and any County employee is eligible for this Program! Regular and Senior/Disability passes are available for purchase, please refer to the Metrolink Discount page to see if you qualify for any discounts. Once you have determined what ticket option works for you, simply complete a Transit Pass Authorization Form and you may either fax it to us at (951) 955-1181 or scan and email it to iCommute@rivco.org

PARTICIPATION AND TERMINATION OF THE TRANSIT PASS PROGRAM

Participation in the Transit Pass Program begins the first of each month, termination is the 15th and last day of each month. To begin, the Transit Pass Authorization Form must be submitted to Commuter Services by the 15th of each month for deductions to begin effective the first of the following month. Bus transit participants will be mailed their monthly bus pass to either their home or work address, and Metrolink participants will be provided with a "quick" card from Metrolink with their deductions loaded for tickets to be dispensed by the employee when needed.

If you wish to change or discontinue the selected Transit Option, you must notify Commuter Services on or before the 15th of the month by completing the Transit Pass Authorization Form and noting whatever change is necessary. REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GIVEN for any monthly passes that have already been distributed.

Feel free to contact Commuter Services at iCommute@rivco.org for more information about the Transit Pass Program!
