Commonwealth Commuter Choice Increase in 2018

November 12, 2017

Beginning January 2018, the maximum Commonwealth Commuter Choice benefit will increase by $5 to $260 per month.

Currently, an Executive Order gives full-time state employees in Northern Virginia up to $255 per month to commute by public transit or vanpool. This is a tax-free benefit paid by the state.

To take advantage of this increase starting in January, be sure to submit your Commonwealth Commuter Choice Request for Monthly Benefit by Friday, December 8.
