Primary Information

    Click here for more information on EBPA: Commuter Benefits. If you are paying for on campus parking out of pocket instead of through Pre-Payroll Tax Deductions or if you are taking public transportation to campus and/or park your car at a Commuter Lot near your T station or Commuter Rail, you will want to enroll in EBPA in order to get a card loaded with Pre-Tax funds for Transit and/or Parking. Otherwise, Payroll Deductions are already Pre-Tax (up to the specified limits) so there is no need to enroll in EBPA.

    Parking on the Medford, SMFA and Grafton Campuses is usually handled through Pre-Tax Payroll Deductions, but the passes can now also be purchased out of pocket using a Credit Card or Check.

    Parking on the Boston Campus can be handled through either Pre-Tax Payroll Deductions if you purchase a monthly pass from one of the local affiliated garages (Hudson Street, Tremont Street, or Motor Mart). Or you can pay out of pocket for daily parking at one of the affiliated garages (Herald Street, Tremont Street, Traveler Street) or a garage of your choosing in the area.
    Key to General Deductions on your Paycheck:
    2019 Before tax deductions are limited to a total of $265 per month for Parking. 
    2019 Before tax deductions are limited to a total of $265 per month for Transportation/Transit. 
    Each category has a separate limit and is subject to change. Pre-Tax maximums for Parking and Transit purchased in 2018 were $260 instead of $265. Click here for more information on EBPA and the Commuter Benefit.
