Town Announces Port Washington Parking District Now Accepts Pre-Tax Commuter Check MasterCard
Port Washington, NY – North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth, Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio and the Town Board are proud to announce that that the Port Washington Parking District is now accepting Commuter Check Card Prepaid MasterCard as a form of tender.
“The Town of North Hempstead is always looking for ways in which we can save our residents money. The Commuter Check Prepaid MasterCard provides commuters with an easy and fast way to take advantage of pre-tax transit benefits that are being offered by their employers,” said Supervisor Judi Bosworth.
This program is new to the Port Washington Parking District and allows participating commuters to use pre-tax dollars to pay for commuting expenses such as parking, public transportation and carpools. The money is deposited into an account and can be used like a flexible spending account.
"This is definitely a change for the better. Anything that makes life easier and saves money for our Port Washington commuters is a good thing," said Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio.
