Perq for Employers
Perq is the MBTA sales channel designed specifically for employers. You can order monthly passes for your employees who rely on bus, subway, Commuter Rail, and ferry service for their daily commute.
You order passes for employees directly from the T, and we send them right to your office.

With Perq, employees are charged for their passes with pretax payroll deductions, saving them money off the typical price. Or, subsidize passes further by deducting less than the full cost from your employees' paychecks.
Because you’re buying directly from the T, you have access to:
- Easy, convenient ordering cycles
- Simple billing
- Dedicated program support staffed 7 days a week
Pass orders renew automatically each month. There are no annual fees, subscription costs or order minimums.
Who Can Apply?
Any employer with a Federal Tax ID number can buy Perq passes.
There is no minimum order size—many of our partners only order a handful of passes each month.
What If Our Company Provides Alternative Transit Benefits?
Your employees should already have access to Perq through your third-party provider. If you’re not sure whether they do, email us at email@example.com.
Even if you don’t sign up for Perq, we offer other resources to help your employees with their commute:
- Auto-pay: Employees using a pre-tax transit benefits card can sign up for Auto-pay to avoid the need to renew their passes each month.
- MBTA guides: Employees who are new to Boston, new to the T, or exploring a change to their commute can check out our MBTA User Guides page for tips on using the system.
How Do I Manage a Perq Account?
We don’t currently support account administration on an employee-by-employee basis, so we rely on employers to make and update orders for their employees as administrators.
Perq administrators can manage their company’s account through the pass program portal.
If you’re not fully subsidizing Perq passes for your employees, you’ll need to set up payroll deductions for the employees who are participating. Please consult a tax professional or an accountant on how to do this correctly.
