Get A Job, Get A Ride!

The Get A Job, Get A Ride! Program helps new employees save on their transportation costs. Participants hired within the past 30 days who are permanent, full time employees, that meet the eligibility requirements, can receive a complimentary 31 Day Pass ($66.00 value) to ride SMART's Fixed Route service.

The first step to get started is for the employer to create a MySMART account. While logged into MySMART, you need to register the company into the Get A Job, Get a Ride program!

In accordance with IRS Code, Section 132 (f) – "Qualified Transportation Fringe Benefit" employees may designate up to $270.00 per month of pre-tax dollars towards their mass transit (Michigan, SMART) commute.

There are two ways to manage this program; either internally administered by the employer or paying a third-party vendor.  Businesses should determine the best way to manage their program.  SMART does not administer this program.
