Once again, the limit on tax-deductible transit benefits for employees is decreasing, this time from $245 per month to $130 per month. How much of a hit will that be to Metrorail riders in our region? Here are some average monthly estimates for each destination or "exit station." For example, the average worker that travels to Rosslyn each morning will lose $31 each month. Estimates include the ride on Metrorail and the access mode for getting to the "entry station." In order to arrive at an estimate for each destination station, we took the average cost for each origin-destination pair and created a weighted average based on ridership figures from the 2012 WMATA Metrorail Rider Survey. Here, "Deficit245" is the typical fare amount not covered by the $245/month benefit (in most cases, this is $0). "Deficit130" is the typical fare that will not be covered by the $130/month benefit, and the change is the difference between "Deficit245" and "Deficit130." These numbers reflect the situation that an employee will face if he or she was receiving the full $245 monthly benefit as a direct payment from his or her employer (the organization paid for the transit passes), and who will now only get $130 from his or her employer each month.For a list of the calculation assumptions and data sources, see the end of this report. For questions or comments, contact Stephen Crim, Research Director of Mobility Lab, at stephen.crim at mobilitylab.org.
