Employee Benefit for Transportation

As a  partner with the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, we are pleased to offer participation in the RTS Employee Bus Pass Program.

The Employee Bus Pass Program was created to mitigate traffic in Gainesville by encouraging employees to use public transit.  The goal of this program is to provide unlimited access to the transit system for employees of contracted participants to diminish the cost per trip compared to regular bus fare.

Any employer with 100 employees or more is eligible to enter into an Employee Bus Pass Program contract with RTS.  If under 100 employees, then the minimum charge is for 100.   Businesses within a complex can pool together to participate, however a single billing entity must be identified (such as a property management firm).

When an employer enters into the one-year contract with RTS, that employer purchases unlimited access bus passes for ALL employees for one year at the rate of $7.50.  Any employee will be able to show an RTS operator his or her ID or bus pass and enjoy RTS fixed route service for free, with the exception of special services such as Gator Aider (the UF home football game day shuttle).  If a business has 100 employees, then they would pay $750 to cover their entire staff for the year.   A year of full fare monthly bus passes would cost a person $420.   So you can see the cost benefit to your employees.
