Transportation

Travelers should use the most efficient and cost effective method of transportation available. Often times this means using a common carrier such as a train, bus, taxicab or airplane.  When choosing a method of transportation several factors should be considered like; the distance traveled, the travel time, number of travelers, number of locations to be visited, and type of transportation available.

When a common carrier is available but a more expensive method is chosen without sufficient justification, reimbursement may be limited to the common carrier rate.  Attach all original receipts to voucher to show means of transportation and amount paid. When possible, travel should be scheduled using NYS travel services contracts.

If a trip is cancelled at the direction of the agency, the traveler will not be responsible for any costs incurred. If cancelled for the traveler’s convenience, he/she may be responsible for any costs.

State Vehicles

Rental Vehicles

Rent in the name of New York State and sign the agreement as an agent for the State. Rentals should not be direct billed to the campus,  and should be paid for via your NYS Travel Card. Do not purchase the additional insurance on the vehicle when using your NYS Travel card. The rental agreement and receipt should be submitted with the Travel Voucher upon your return. Gasoline purchases as well as any other direct costs associated with the rental vehicle can be placed on the Travel card and receipts should be submitted with your travel voucher upon your return.  Reasons for using a rental car may be public transportation not available or a rental car is cheaper than alternative transportation.
