Offices should purchase Metro farecards to be used by DC area employees for local travel such as for training. The way travel is processed now, it costs almost double the travel cost to reimburse the employee. My travel cost $44 to attend 3 days of training in DC, and it took 2 months, 4 employees, and cost fees of $8 or $28 to process the travel voucher through the GovTrip program.
