Pre-Tax Parking Benefits

Save money on commuter parking expenses with pre-tax benefits!

Commuting to work each day can be expensive, and parking costs are often a big part of that. Now, there is a Commuter Benefit program offered by Stanford Health Care and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital that will help you save money on parking!

30-40% SAVINGS

Employees who pay for parking at transit or at work can use pre-tax dollars to pay for the purchase. For example, if you pay for daily parking in the 500 Pasteur - Pasteur Staff Garage (PSG) for $12/day using the Stanford Medicine Parking app, you can save 30-40% on up to $300/month of parking expenses by loading your pre-tax dollars on a Commuter Check Prepaid Mastercard to pay for the parking.

To start using pre-tax dollars to pay for parking, sign up for Commuter Benefits online.
