TRANSIT BENEFIT PROGRAM BULLETIN
TRANServe ELECTRONIC FARE MEDIA - DEBIT CARD ALERT
Bulletin Number: TSB-2013-1
Date: October 2, 2012
Subject: Alert for TRANServe Customers who Ride Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)
Purpose: To notify Agency Points of Contact (POCs) that all DOT TRANServe Debit Card participants who ride Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) should begin utilizing the Clipper Card to fund all BART purchases. This notification affects only those participants who ride BART.
Background: Use of the TRANServe Debit Card greatly reduces the risk of fraud, waste, and abuse for Federal employees utilizing transit benefits. The federal transit benefit and parking cannot be co-mingled. TRANServe continues to work diligently with transit authorities around the nation that offer parking to ensure the appropriate use of the federal transit benefit.
Information: TRANServe Debit Card participants who ride BART should begin utilizing the transit benefit via the BART Clipper Card. Clipper Card purchases allow for compliant travel by TRANServe participants commuting from home to work to home.
