How does my company get the TransiChecks?
Once an employer signs a letter of agreement, The T will provide a batch of Transi-Checks to your company on a consignment basis. Then, The T's Employee Trip Reduction Coordinator will mail additional TransiChecks as needed. Employees must redeem TransiChecks within 90 days of receiving them.
How do I pay for the TransiChecks?
Employers pay only for the TransiChecks that employees redeem. Each month, all redeemed TransiChecks used by employees at your company will be invoiced to you.
How do employees redeem the TransiChecks?
It's easy. They simply mail the Transi-Check Voucher form, along with a check or money order, to The T by the 9th of each month. They can also pay at The T's Customer Service Department at 1001 Jones Street (Intermodal Transportation Center). Only one Transi-Check may be redeemed per employee, per month.
What about employees who use vanpools?
Vanpool passengers are issued TransiCheck by their employers, with an amount designated at the employer's discretion. When the van driver collects van fares, the van passenger gives the driver the TransiCheck, plus the amount of the difference for the monthly fare.
Are there any limitations on TransiChecks?
Yes. They may not be used toward the purchase of a senior citizen pass, disable pass, or for MITS (Mobility Impaired Transit Service).

What if my employer chooses not to subscribe?
