San Francisco Bay Area employers with 50 or more full-time employees within the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District) geographic boundaries were required to register and offer commuter benefits to their employees by September 30, 2014 in order to comply with Air District Regulation 14, Rule 1, the Bay Area Commuter Benefits Program. Employers that have not yet registered are still required to do so as soon as possible. Qualifying employers must offer their employees one of four Commuter Benefit options in order to comply with Air District Regulation 14, Rule 1.

Commuter benefits encourage employees to take transit, vanpool, carpool, bicycle and walk rather than drive alone to work.

Step 1: if you have not registered, do so as soon as possible;

Step 2: offer benefits to employees if you have not yet;

Step 3: request an extension from the Air District if you need more time to offer benefits.

Employers that need an extension to offer commuter benefits should contact the Air District at commuterbenefits@baaqmd.gov. In the email, please indicate the reason for the extension and specify the date by which benefits will be offered to employees. Please include your employer ID # if you have this available.

Employers with fewer than 50 Bay Area employees may be subject to a local commuter benefits ordinance
