VitaFlex debit card

Use your VitaFlex debit card to pay for eligible transportation expenses through the Nutanix CBP. It offers flexible payment options and gives you instant access to funds in your commuter account at approved merchants accepting debit cards. Here are a few ways to leverage the card:

  • Pay at point of service: The VitaFlex debit card can be used at approved merchants providing mass transit and parking services. You must use your debit card to pay for mass transit expenses. (Note: Due to federal regulations, your debit card will not work at Caltrain terminals; however, it can be used to fund your Clipper card.)
  • Pay based on a bill or invoice: If you receive a bill or invoice for parking services and the approved provider accepts debit cards, you can provide your VitaFlex debit card number to initiate payment.
  • Link it to a reloadable mass transit card: If you use a reloadable mass transit card, you can link your VitaFlex debit card to the reloadable card as the funding source.

Learn more about the VitaFlex debit card on the VitaFlex portal.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

iconWhy should I consider participating in the Commuter Benefit Program (CBP)?

The CBP lets you use dollars from your paycheck before taxes are taken out to pay for eligible transportation expenses. This can lower your taxable income and help you save money on taxes.

You must be an active, full-time employee who works at least 30 hours a week.
