The minimum purchase amount on the commuter check card is $10 and the maximum single purchase amount is $700. The maximum purchase amount for the card provides the convenience of being able to purchase multi-month passes (e.g. two-month pass, three-month pass). Your purchase amount is subject to your available account balance and the IRS limits or your employer's Plan maximums for Transit and Parking, whichever is less.
For example: Your Transit or Parking plan limit is $100 per month. That means that the maximum amount you could charge on your card during the calendar year is $1,200 (12 months x $100 per month = $1,200). Any amounts over your Plan's calendar year maximum must be paid out-of-pocket and are not eligible for the pre-tax savings.
