combine it with the transit benefit (it's one or the other).
That said, $20/month would've covered my Brooklyn/Manhattan
commute expenses (which are of course higher in the winter).
=v= On the opposite coast, bikes aren't allowed on most Bay Area
bridges, so the minimum cost for a San Francisco/Oakland commute
is a BART ride from Embarcadero to West Oakland. This tallies
up to just under the reduced transit benefit, and most of the
trip is by bike.
