Q: Is the $75 parking stipend going to be automatic if you don’t hold a parking permit?
A: Yes, once the initial registration and verification has been completed. The details of the registration and verification process are still being worked out, but management has confirmed it will be automated and paid on the 20th paycheck. You must decline Company-provided parking in order to be eligible.
Q: Is it going to be retroactive to 1/1/18? Is it ongoing or just one time?
A: No, it is not retroactive to 1/1/2018. Yes, it will be ongoing once the program has been implemented following ratification. (It is not a one-time payment.)
Q: If I am a registered air commuter, can I take the monthly parking stipend?
A: Yes, as long as you decline Company-provided parking.
Q: As someone who commutes to and from work via light rail in Seattle, and who was very disappointed when the company ceased the commuter trip reduction program, will I be able to use the $75 stipend any way I choose—which, for me, would mean putting that money onto an ORCA card to use on Seattle area public transportation?
A: Yes, it will be paid monthly directly onto your 20th paycheck and you can use it any way you choose.
