Buy Passes With an Employer Debit Card

Please be sure to read this whole page before continuing.

What are their benefits? Employer-sponsored debit cards make it easier, faster and more convenient for employees to take advantage of pre-tax transit benefits offered through their employer. If you have a personal credit card on file and are enrolled in an authorized employer debit card program, you can pay for all or part of your orders with your employer debit card.

Where can I get one? Talk to your human resources department to find out if your employer offers a debit card program for distribution of transit benefits.

How do I enter my card information? Employer debit card information should be entered in the Employer Debit Cards information area only. Recurring orders may be declined in instances where information is improperly entered. Entering your employer debit card information in the employer debit card area will also allow you to split a payment with a personal credit card.

When you are ready to proceed, select an option below to add the debit card provided by your employer to a new or existing MTA account.
