P&A Group’s Benefits Card vendor, Alegeus, has just announced that uberPOOL, Lyft Line & Via fare can be paid for with the P&A issued Benefits Card.  This new feature will provide greater convenience for commuter participants in the pre-tax Transit program!  Previously, these fares were not authorized with the Benefits Card and therefore unable to be used under the Section 132 Transit program. Paying for uberPOOL, Lyft Line and Via fare with the Benefits Cards is currently restricted to cities who are eligible to leverage these services.  The following cities currently leverage these services:

uberPOOL

Atlanta, GA

Boston, MA

Chicago, IL

Denver, CO

Las Vegas, NV

Los Angeles, CA

Miami, FL

New York, NY

Philadelphia, PA

San Diego, CA

San Francisco, CA

Seattle, WA

State of New Jersey

Washington DC

Lyft Line

Boston, MA

Miami, FL

New York, NY

Seattle, WA

Via

Chicago, IL

This list is constantly growing, so please check the Uber, Lyft and Via websites for updates.  We look forward to working with our client and broker partners in adding this feature to eligible Transit Plans.
