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 Transportation Expense Program Authorization Form and you may either fax it to us at (951) 955-1181 or scan and email it to icommute@rivco.org.
