Important Changes to Parking and Transit Accounts

uberPool Added as Approved Form of Payment for Benny Card

HRPro Benny Cards are now an approved payment form for uberPOOL, and we have added uberPOOL as a valid terminal for transit purchases. As such, any HRPro Benny Card that has a transit purse loaded with the terminal ID solution configured can use uberPOOL.

UberPOOL enables commuters to save money by riding uberPOOL on their pre-tax dollars. uberPOOL matches people going to the same place at the same time to share an eligible van pool vehicle (six or more seats). (Note uberPOOL is not the same as uber – which is designed for personal use).

Commuters can now add their commuter benefits debit card to their Uber account.

As they commute, they simply select their commuter benefit card as the payment method and request an uberPOOL. When requesting an uberPOOL with a HRPro Benny Card selected as the payment method, Uber will automatically match the commuter with eligible vehicles.

How does it work?
Commuter can add his/her HRPro Benny Card as a payment method on Uber:

  1. Open the Uber app
  2. Select Add Payment Method
  3. Add the HRPro Benny Card
  4. Commuter requests an uberPOOL from the Uber app on his/her device.
  5. Commuter uses the HRPro Benny Card to pay for his/her ride.

HRPro Benny Cards currently work for uberPOOL riders in the following cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle, and in the state of New Jersey.

Lyft Line Added as Approved Form of Payment for Benny Card

HRPro Benny Cards are also now an approved payment form for Lyft Line in Miami, Boston, New York, and Seattle. Lyft Line is a valid terminal for transit purchases in these cities. As such, any Benny Card that has a transit purse loaded with the terminal ID solution configured can use Lyft Line in Miami, Boston, New York, and Seattle.

All Benny Cards issued that have a transit purse loaded using the terminal ID solution can take advantage of this benefit. Commuters in Miami, Boston, New York, and Seattle can now add their commuter benefits debit card to their Lyft account.

As commuters commute in Miami, Boston, New York, and Seattle, they simply select their commuter benefit card as the payment method and request a Lyft Line. When requesting a Lyft Line with a Benny Card selected as the payment method, Lyft will automatically match the commuter with eligible vehicles.

Lyft Line enables commuters to save money by commuting using their pre-tax dollars. Lyft Line matches people going to the same place at the same time to share an eligible van pool vehicle (six or more seats).
