Commuter Benefits for Faculty and Staff

All faculty and staff are eligible to set aside pre-tax dollars for qualified commuting expenses up to the monthly IRS limit. Additionally, full-time faculty and staff who do not have a university parking permit and who are not listed on a carpool parking permit may qualify for a USF commuter subsidy contribution of up to $70 per month.

Visit the Human Resources Commuter Benefits page for more information.


USF is home to six Zipcars located in the Upper Koret lot. Faculty and Staff can join for $25 a year, with no annual fee ($60 savings). To see which driving plans match your needs or to become a USF Zipcar member, visit Zipcar @ USF. 

Guaranteed Trip Home

The Guaranteed Trip Home Program is available to faculty and staff who carpool or take public transit to work. The program is intended for those employees who live within the Bay Area and are forced with an emergency that requires an immediate departure from campus to home.
