A partnership with CSO and those companies providing area transportation and parking results in a savings passed on to you! The benefits include discounts on the following: transit passes, transit tickets, transit tokens, and parking permits.

PAYMENT FROM FUTURE CHECK OPTION DISCONTINUED

Effective October 1, 2015, you will no longer be able to use after-tax deduction from a future paycheck to cover any additional product cost for Pass-Buy-Mail, PATCO or parking above the IRS pre-tax deduction limit.  Funds must be available in your account to pay in full for the product/service at the time of the transaction.  If you do not have sufficient funds in your account to cover the cost of your product/service, we will not be able to provide you with the product/service until complete payment is received.

TRANSIT

If your product is $255.00 or less: you must increase your pre-tax deduction to meet the cost of the product you purchase.  Please confirm your enrollment in the pre-tax deduction program; if your current deduction meets the cost of your product/service - no action is required.

If your product is more than $255.00: you must establish a pre-funded CSO after tax deduction via Employee Self Service to pay the additional amount due.

PARKING

If your product is $255.00 or less: you must increase pre-tax deduction to meet the cost of the product you purchase.  Please confirm your enrollment in the pre-tax deduction program; if your current deduction meets the cost of your product/service - no action is required.

If your product is more than $255.00: you must establish a pre-funded CSO after tax deduction via Employee Self Service to pay the additional amount due. 

Please review these instructions for adjusting your current pre-tax enrollment and establishing a new pre-funded after tax enrollment.
