RideECO is an Easy Commute Option program employers can offer to their employees to help pay for the cost of commuting to work on public transportation or in vanpools.
Your employer decides if and how to offer the program. Some offer the program through pre-tax payroll deductions, allowing commuters and employers to benefit from tax savings. Other employers offer RideECO as an employer-paid benefit.
Ask your human resources department if your workplace offers our program.
Let your human resources department know that you take public transportation to work and are interested in RideECO. You can speak to your employer directly, request that we contact your employer via email or download a brochure.
Vouchers may be redeemed or the stored value card may be used to purchase tickets, tokens, monthly or weekly passes with every major area transit agency in our region including: SEPTA, PATCO, NJ Transit (including the RiverLINE), DART First State, and Amtrak.1
In Central Pennsylvania, the following transit agencies accept RideECO: Capital Area Transit (Harrisburg), LT (Lebanon Transit), Red Rose (Lancaster County), rabbittransit (York County), BARTA (Berks County) and Amtrak.2

If you purchase fare materials that cost more than the value of your RideECO voucher or card, you pay the difference. If you purchase fare materials that cost less than the value of your card or voucher, you will not get any change. Please note, you may redeem your RideECO card in one transaction or over multiple transactions until the balance is $0.
Yes, vouchers are good for 13 months from the date of issue. You must use your voucher before it expires. Expired vouchers cannot be accepted or replaced. Balances on the RideECO stored value card carry over into subsequent months, up to a limit of $700.
Commuters who use SEPTA’s Permit-by-Mail program may be able to receive an additional $20 in RideECO value each month to help cover parking costs. It is up to your employer whether or not to offer this additional parking benefit. The parking benefit is available only when it is combined with a SEPTA monthly trail pass purchase through SEPTA’s Permit-by-Mail program.
Handle your vouchers with care. They will not be replaced if lost, tampered with, stolen, worn or torn. If you have any concerns about your vouchers, contact your human resources department. If you have a RideECO card, please call 888.782.5002 to notify us that the card is lost or stolen to protect the balance on the card.
First speak to your human resources department if you have questions about your vouchers or to find out about commuter benefits at your workplace. For general information about the program, email RideECO@dvrpc.org or call 215.592.1800.
