SAN MATEO, Calif.— May 16, 2017 — WageWorks, Inc. (NYSE: WAGE), a leader in administering Consumer-Directed Benefits (CDBs), announced a partnership today with SpotHero, the leading parking reservation service in North America. The first-of-its-kind offering enables commuters to book and pay for daily parking with pre-tax dollars through SpotHero’s mobile app. Anyone with aWageWorks Commuter Account, which allows commuters to use pre-tax funds to pay for parking at work, can take advantage of this new benefit. Using SpotHero, participants can find convenient parking garages near the office, compare rates and book a spot in advance using pre-tax dollars.
