Payroll Deduction for Transit Pass Information

Current Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations allow CWU faculty and staff to elect pre-tax payroll deduction as a payment method for the Yakima-Ellensburg Commuter monthly Transit Pass. At this time, payroll deduction is not available for Temporary/Hourly employees or Students.

The monthly Transit Pass is $150. This amount will be taken equally ($75) from pay received on the 10th and 25th of the current month. The cost of your transit pass will be taken from your pay before federal withholding or Social Security taxes are calculated; therefore reducing your taxable income.

Transit passes are nonrefundable and will not be replaced if lost or stolen.

If you have questions, contact Human Resources at (509) 963-1202 or hr@cwu.edu.

To Participate:  Complete the Transit Pass Payroll Deduction form and submit to HR by the 25th of the month for the upcoming month. Continue to pick up your Transit Pass from Human Resources each month in Bouillon 140.
