Mass Transit Expense Reimbursement Program

This program is in place to reimburse a portion of mass transit expenses for employees using CTA/Pace or Metra to commute to and from work on a monthly basis. It is being offered as a way to both reduce the number of cars brought on campus and to support green efforts and sustainability. The terms remain unchanged. 

To receive reimbursement, an employee must bring a receipt for a paid, monthly CTA/Pace or Metra pass to the Benefits Administrator, room 220, in Lehmann Hall. If the employee does not have a receipt, they can surrender their expired monthly pass. In exchange for the paid receipt or the expired monthly pass, the employee will receive transit fare vouchers for future purchases in accordance with the formula below:  

 Monthly Pass Expense

Amount of College Reimbursement Voucher









$120.00 and over



At the time of the voucher reimbursement, the employee will be required to sign a receipt log.

The Internal Revenue Service guidelines identify this type of program as a tax-free employee benefit. The College further stipulates that:  

  • Only one transaction per employee is permitted per month.
  • The College is not responsible for replacing lost, damaged or destroyed vouchers.
  • The program continues at the discretion of the College and may be cancelled at any time.
  • Abuse of the vouchers or other terms of the program may result in a person losing this benefit.
