For bargaining units with an existing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), if the MOU contains commute program language that is in conflict with these policies, the MOU language shall be controlling.
The Commute Programs provide bicycle, transit and vanpool incentives to all eligible state employees. The goal of the Commute Programs is to reduce the number of vehicles on the road by encouraging employees to explore and use alternate means of transportation to commute to and from work. Fewer vehicles on the road means an improvement in air quality and less traffic congestion.
The state, as the employer, may establish and implement procedures and eligibility criteria for the administration of the benefits in the Commute Programs, including required receipts and certification of expenses. If you have specific questions about the Commute Programs, please contact your department’s personnel office for assistance.
