CorpConnectionsGet on Board with Corporate Connections!

The Greensboro Transit Authority Corporate Connections program provides businesses with an opportunity to partner with GTA to meet the growing transportation needs of employees.

In the Corporate Connections partnership, employers provide their staff with subsidized transit passes for travel while GTA provides efficient transit services, travel training, route coordination, and communications and promotional assistance. Whether your company is large or small, Corporate Connections can become an important asset for your business.

How does a company benefit?
When you provide transit passes to your employees as a benefit -- subsidizing either all or part of the cost of the pass -- you can deduct the entire cost, up to $125 per month for each employee, as a business expense.* Or, you can arrange to have your employees purchase passes through a pre-tax payroll deduction.* As an employer, you can have confidence that your employees have safe, dependable transportation to and from work each day regardless of weather or traffic!

How do employees benefit?
Did you know next to housing expenses, transportation is a household's largest expense? With Corporate Connections, your employees will know they have dependable, affordable transportation every day using our entire GTA/HEAT system and its 1,100-plus bus stops. This means they can focus more on their jobs and less on transportation worries.

How does the community benefit?
The community will be able to enjoy the benefits of improved air quality, reduced traffic congestion, increased access to jobs, and increased safety, all of which enhance everyone’s quality of life.
