Eco-Pass: Transit Pass Discounts for Employees

Eco-Pass is an annual pass that provides unlimited bus, trolley, and flex route transportation service.

RIPTA is introducing a new program called Eco-Pass for employers who are interested in offering their employees a reduced cost transit benefit. The Eco‑Pass is an annual unlimited ride pass.

Similar to our highly successful UPass program for colleges and universities, this smart card allows employers to subsidize transit per ride, eliminating the need to distribute monthly fare products and encouraging transit usage among occasional riders.

Employers pay a reduced fare rate, distribute as many cards as they want, and pay only for the rides taken.

  • No implementation costs. Electronic smart cards, administrative assistance, and technical support are free.
  • Per ride trip costs dramatically reduced. Call for details.
  • Any size company can participate.
  • Detailed monthly ridership/billing report provided.
  • Commuter Resource RI provides on-site events and one-on-one trip planning for employees.
