The Commuter Benefits Ordinance requires San Francisco businesses with 20 or more nationwide employees to offer one of the following benefits to their San Francisco employees:
  1. A monthly pre-tax deduction, up to $230/month, to pay for transit or vanpool expenses.

  2. A monthly subsidy for transit or vanpool expenses equivalent to the value of the San Francisco Muni Fast Pass (including travel on BART), currently $70/month.
  3. Shuttle service on a company-funded bus or van between employee home and place of business.

In addition, all businesses, whether or not you need to comply with the Ordinance, must fill out an Annual Compliance Reporting Form by April 30, 2011.
