Businesses validating/discounting PT tickets instead of parking?

Hi all,
I'm working on a school project about a new railway station at a busy retail mall. We are trying to propose policies/interventions that will help shift away from private car use to access the mall. One possible program could begin charging for parking (currently free) and instead shift the subsidy to PT modes like bus and rail. It's common of course for businesses to validate parking if you spend enough, but I can't find any cases of a program that validates or discounts bus or rail tickets when you spend above a threshold.
Is anybody aware of any such cases? If not, please feel free to discuss your thoughts on such a policy.
Cheers!

I've seen talks of this, but never anyone actually doing it. I would love to read your paper at the end about the places you find! I did come across this blog post from Minneapolis, though!
