TIP Program

Transportation Incentive Program (TIP)

TIP helps Department of Navy employees reduce their daily contribution to traffic congestion and air pollution by expanding their commuting alternatives. The maximum monthly benefit amount of $315 is provided to TIP participants who commute to work by bus, ferry, or vanpool.*  

TIP is designed to pay for mass transit costs incurred by personnel in their local commute from residence to permanent duty station. Participants must accurately claim an amount that reflects their actual commuting cost—failure to do so will result in fraudulent certification on the application and is subject to criminal prosecution. This program is a benefit, not an entitlement; thus, there is no retroactive reimbursement for the program.

* Ferries include the Kitsap Transit Foot Ferry, Kitsap Fast Ferry or Washington State Ferries. You must either walk on or be a passenger in an eligible vanpool. Eligible vanpools are public transit agency vanpools or approved, registered private vanpools.
