Mercer Marketplace 365: Commuter Benefits 101

Whether you’re a first-time commuter, or a seasoned veteran who’s familiar with using pre-tax dollars to get from point A to point B, you’ll quickly learn that with Mercer Marketplace 365, the ride is smooth.

Commuter benefits help you save on subway, bus, and train rides, as well as parking and vanpooling with uberPOOL and Lyft Line. How? By allowing you to use pre-tax dollars toward your work-related transit and parking expenses each month. That’s right, commuter benefits are a monthly benefit – so those pre-tax funds will only be available after you’ve contributed them each month. Here’s how it all works.

Once you’ve enrolled in a commuter plan through your employer, you’ll receive a Mercer Marketplace 365 Debit Card to use your funds. Using your commuter dollars is easy. Simply swipe your debit card at the station for a daily ticket or log in to your transit authority’s website or mobile app to purchase or reload a monthly pass.

Did we mention the paperwork? No? Good! Because there isn’t any! And since you’re someone who’s on-the-go, don’t forget to download the free Mercer Marketplace Accounts mobile app to check your commuter balance anytime, anywhere.
