We are excited to announce that Uber now accepts Zenefits Commuter Benefits!

Zenefits Commuter Benefits

Zenefits customers can now use their pre-tax dollars to pay for UberPool rides when they commute to work. UberPOOL creates a carpool by finding commuters that are headed in the same direction. By sharing a ride, commuters are able to get to and from work with convenience, comfort, and a low fare.  

This program is currently available in locations where UberPOOL is offered:

  • Atlanta
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Denver
  • Las Vegas
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • Philadelphia
  • San Diego
  • San Francisco
  • Seattle
  • New Jersey – all cities
  • New York City
  • Washington D.C.

How to Use Your Commuter Benefits Card for UberPool


Q: Can riders use flat fare ride passes for this program?

A: Unfortunately, at this time, riders cannot use flat fares passes with commuter benefits. Uber is actively looking into this functionality and prioritizing it as soon as possible.

Q: If I want to use my commuter benefits credits on UberPOOL, should I allocate my funds to parking or transit?

A: Please allocate your funds to transit.

Q: Do these commuter benefits rides cost more than a regular UberPOOL?

A: UberPOOL commuter benefits rides cost just as much as regular UberPOOL rides.

Q: Do these rides take longer to arrive?

A: Yes, since Uber needs to dispatch a 6 seater vehicle, ETAs will be slightly longer.

Q: Can riders also use commuter benefits credits on eligible Lyft Line rides in SF?

A: Currently, the Lyft commuter benefits program is only live in Boston, Miami, New York, and Seattle. Lyft does not have immediate plans to launch in any other cities soon.
