I enrolled in pre-tax transit deductions because I understand that I save on taxes (by doing this).
What I don't understand is how post-tax savings works for transit and parking. For something like a IRA or 401k post tax savings ensures that you can withdraw the funds without taxation when you retire (at the required age).
I clearly am not receiving this benefit when I use post-tax transit savings to, say, ride the bus.
What is the benefit to the employee in this case? Why do companies offer it?
I googled for this however everything discusses pre-tax benefits.
If it matters, I'm in SF and this is a common company benefit.
