Workers in Seattle, New York City, Boston, and Miami are now able to use pretax dollars to commute to work via Lyft Line, the ride-hailing company announced Wednesday.

The program, which comes five months after Lyft rival Uber launched a similar service, lets commuters save up to 40 percent on rides, Lyft said in its announcement.

To use the service, workers need to have a prepaid commuter benefits card from one of several supported providers, including WageWorks, TransitChek, Benefit Resource, Commuter Benefit Solutions, Navia, and Zenefits. Then, when requesting a ride to work, the commuter selects Line mode and the prepaid card as the payment option.

The ride will be in a Line vehicle, which includes seats for up to six passengers who will be picked up over the course of the trip.

Uber’s commuter benefit program launched in New York City last August, and expanded to 12 other cities, including Seattle, and all of New Jersey last week.
