In recent years, a new kind of transportation service provider, known as Transportation Network Companies (TNCs), have begun operations across the United States and the world. TNCs connect paying passengers with drivers-for-hire via Web sites and mobile apps. TNCs are a form of special conveyance for purposes of the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR), and may be an efficient and cost effective alternative to taxis or rental cars. This bulletin provides guidance to agencies subject to FTR to clarify that they may authorize and reimburse employees for use of TNC for official business away from the employee's official station in accordance with internal agency policy and when permissible under local laws and ordinances. Pursuant to the authority of 5 U.S.C. 5702(a) this bulletin applies only to employees on temporary duty travel. FTR Bulletin 16-05 and all other FTR Bulletins can be found at www.gsa.gov/ftrbulletin.Start Signature
