(pronounced NICE Ride) is a program that allows New York State
employees to save money on a monthly basis on eligible public
transportation expenses by paying for the cost through pre-tax
payroll deductions. By enrolling in NYS-Ride, you can save money
on work-related public transportation expenses/fares for mass
transit or vanpools–and support a cleaner New York. The program
is sponsored by GOER and administered by WageWorks.
