Welcome to the Caltrans Travel Guide!
The Caltrans Travel Guide and Caltrans Travel Tips are the Department's method of communicating travel and reimbursement rules to employees. It is the goal of the Division of Accounting to communicate this information in a timely and accurate manner.
The Travel Guide details the Department of Personnel Administration's travel rules and the Department's travel policies. Before traveling on State business or incurring travel expenses, employees should review the Travel Guide for current information.
