The Transportation Network Companies—commonly known as ride-hailing companies—have been a hot topic, as legislation has been introduced to reimburse feds for rides while Washington, D.C.'s Metro continues its SafeTrack repair campaign.
GSA said agencies should review their policies to determine whether their employees are authorized for travel reimbursement. The bulletin said final approval for travel reimbursement from ride-hailing companies would ultimately come from the agency in question.
