How do commuter benefits save me money?

The amount of money you set aside to pay for your commute doesn’t count as income, so you’re not taxed on it. By having your commuting costs automatically deducted from your paycheck, you’re actually taking home more money and giving less to Uncle Sam. It’s something you’re going to pay for anyway, so not doing it is like saying no thanks to free money.
