Guidelines for the Disbursement of Funds

Bus/Boat/Rail Fares (not considered in-city transportation)

Travelers should comparison shop for the fare that most efficiently (time and cost) serves their travel needs. Flexibility in arrival or departure times will impact the ability to price the lowest cost available fares. Normally, fares booked well in advance will result in lower costs. There are no state fund requirements to use the STMP for these types of fares.

Receipt Requirements

A receipt is required to be attached to the expense report that includes the following at a minimum: name of the employee, vendor name, ticket number, class of transportation, amount of fare, origin, destination and dates of each leg and proof of payment.
