Method of Travel

  • Each state agency is responsible for determining the need for and method of travel.
  • Reimbursement for travel is governed by the terms of the current Memorandum of Understanding and the applicable Government Code sections and CalHR Rules.
  • Reimbursement for transportation expenses will be based on the method of transportation that is in the best interest of the state, considering both direct expense and the employee's time.

If an employee chooses and is authorized to use a method of transportation that is: 

  • Not the least costly,
  • Not the typical method of getting from one location to the other, or
  • Not "in the best interest of the state," a cost comparison will be prepared and the employee shall be reimbursed only the amount that would have been reimbursed had the employee traveled using the least costly method.
