Metropass: Pre-Tax Public Transit Benefit

The Transportation Equity Act of 2000 (IRS Code Section 132) allows the City of Minneapolis to provide valuable tax savings to its employees for mass transit expenses. The City offers you the opportunity to take advantage of this tax exemption by enrolling in the Metropass program and purchasing a pass on a pre-tax payroll deduction basis.

The Metropass allows a participant unlimited bus and light rail rides while enrolled. For the majority of City employees, the Metropoass currently costs $50 per month.  Different rates apply to certain employee groups.


City of Minneapolis non-sworn regular full-time employees, non-sworn regular part-time employees, and non-sworn seasonal full-time employees are eligible.

Independent Board and Agency employees should contact their Human Resources Department to determine if the board or agency has established a Metropass program.
