In March 2014, Senate Bill 1339 authorized the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District) and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to adopt and implement the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program. This program was designed to promote the use of alternative commute modes, such as public transportation, in an effort to decrease motor vehicle travel and traffic congestion, and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants, thus protecting public health and the climate.
As part of this mandate, Fremont Unified School District has implemented a district Commuter Benefits Program, which is being administered by MyCommuterCheck. This Commuter Benefits Program allows participants to use pre-tax dollars to pay for public transportation (a maximum of $270 can be deducted from your check each month). All regular employees working at least 20 hours per week are eligible to participate. Complete details on how you can participate in this group benefit are attached to this letter.
To all current employees:
Please read an informational letter (2014) on FUSD Commuter Benefits from Raúl M. Zamora, Ed.D., Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, (Informational letter)
