Organizations that receive transit passes through the Transit Empowerment Fund are required to submit quarterly reports on the bus passes they distribute to clients.
A quarterly reporting tool is made available on the Partner Portal of the TEF website starting on the first business day of each quarter. A reminder of the reporting deadline as well as a link to that reporting tool is sent out to recipient organizations. We will also send out an additional reminder before the deadline, which includes the list of organizations that have already submitted their report for that reporting quarter.
Upcoming quarterly report deadlines:
- FY22 Q3: July-September 2022 bus pass distribution data will be due on Monday, October 17th, 2022
- FY22 Q4: October-December 2022 bus pass distribution data will be due on Tuesday, January 17th, 2023
Reports submitted after the deadline are considered late. It is very important that you report your organization’s bus pass distribution accurately and in a timely manner. Late reporting can impact your ability to qualify for an abbreviated application (which is much easier for you to fill out and for us to process) as well your organization’s eligibility for free passes in the future.
If you know in advance that you won’t be able to report on time, please let us know. We try to be reasonable about the deadlines and will make exceptions if warranted. It is better to report late than skip reporting as this is where errors start to creep up.
If your organization does not distribute any passes for a given quarter, you will still need to submit a report. Simply indicate on the form that no passes were distributed that month.
When you submit your quarterly report, a copy of your responses will automatically be sent to your email. Please keep these in your files.
