For Individual Participants: Communications

Military Transit Benefit

Military reimburses military personnel (and other government employees) when they use public transit to travel to and from work. Why are local military installations allowed to "opt out" (or basically ignore) the Presidential Executive Order? I live in a community where the military installation has done nothing about the Mass Transit Benefit Program by setting up a system to communicate the advantages and encourage military and other governmental employees to use the public transit. And, yet, we are going to receive a large contingent of additional military and Department of Defense civilian employees in the near future. We are trying to become a community that is less POV dependent and this position by military personnel is a barrier to achieve that.
