How can I use uberPOOL as a pre-tax expense?

Since uberPOOL is an eligible pre-tax expense, all you need to do is enroll in the GoNavia Commuter benefit offered by your employer. Learn more about the GoNavia Commuter benefit here: https://www.naviabenefits.com/participants/benefits/gonavia-commuter-benefits/


If you’re an existing GoNavia participant, you can use your Navia debit card to pay for uberPOOL rides directly through the Uber app.

How does it work?

Download the Uber app and load your Navia debit card information to your Uber account. Request an uberPOOL ride and select the Navia debit card as your payment method. The uberPOOL option only appears if your pickup and drop-off points are within the uberPOOL service area. It’s that simple!

Can this be used for my dependent's commuter expenses?

No. The GoNavia Commuter benefit is a pre-tax benefit to pay for your work-related transit and parking expenses.  Only the GoNavia account holder’s expenses are eligible.

What if my GoNavia account balance cannot cover the fare?

If your Navia debit card doesn’t have sufficient funds for the fare, Uber will cover the payment to the driver and your account will be on hold until you pay for the fare with a different payment card.

If you find yourself in this situation, be sure to adjust your GoNavia monthly order amount accordingly.

Who do I contact with questions about uberPOOL?

For questions about uberPOOL, you can visit Uber’s website or tap “Help” in the Uber app for support.

Does my employer need to do anything if we already have the GoNavia benefit?

Nope!  UberPOOL expenses are now eligible under your existing GoNavia plan. There are no additional employer steps required for you to start utilizing your pre-tax dollars towards your work-related uberPOOL costs.
