    Seems there is a credit you can receive for commuting by bicycle. Sounds as if you have to get your employer involved to make it happen but it may get you a few bucks every now and then.

    They have a similar program going on in the UK, but the credit is towards the purchase of a bike. I think you can actually get your bike for about 1/2 off, or something along those lines. It's called the Green Transport Plan.

    Is it a Federal Program and does it cost the employer anything?

    Unfortunately, I know my employer -- not a chance they'd go for it, too much work for too little return.
