About EasyRide Commuter Program

EasyRide is the Fort Worth Transportation Authority's (FWTA) transit program that provides commuter cost savings to Tarrant County businesses and their employees. Transit options include the Trinity Railway Express (TRE), and all buses and trains of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority (FWTA), Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), and Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA).

How EasyRide Works

Employers complete an agreement with the FWTA, the FWTA then provides the employer an employee registration form along with a Company Code. Employees complete and return the registration form to their HR department who will forward to FWTA. Once processed, the employees will have access to the EasyRide online store to purchase online discount passes (25% off regular price).

Employer Benefits

  • Receive a tax deduction by covering transit pass costs. The current maximum dollar amount under federal law for employer-provided transit/parking is $255 per month. This more than covers the monthly maximum FWTA costs of $160 per month.
  • Improve employee recruitment and retention by offering transit discounts as part of their benefits package.
  • Reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.
