Bike commuters are currently the only group of American workers who aren’t entitled to a tax break for the cost of their commute to work. This bill would rectify this by giving bike commuters a pre-tax benefit similar to those for car and public transit commuters.
This bill likely won’t have a significant positive impact on bike commuting rates, as the inherent barriers to bike commuting — lack of protected bike lanes, long distances from homes to offices, and real or perceived lack of safety — are unchanged by this bill.
