    FYI – for 2014 as it stands, the pretax commuter transit benefit goes from $245 to $135, and the pretax commuter parking benefit goes from $245 to $250

    Oh man, not this BS again. The transit benefit will eventually restored to $245 or 250 and likely with a short expiry time again. What a waste of time for our lawmakers and all of the administrators right down to the payroll departments of companies who offer the pretax benefit.

Transit riders, cyclists, and pedestrians must repeatedly advocate for every improvement, no matter how large or small, while road and freeway projects proceed without referendums and parking benefits automatically increase.
