Qualify Bicycles for Lower Travel Reimbursements

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

I am presently reimbursed at 51 cents per mile to use of my privately owned automobile and would like to instead sometimes be reimbursed at 10 cents per mile to use my privately owned bicycle. Add bicycles to the list of reimbursable mileage rates or otherwise fund its use. My bike, tires, maintenance, and riding gear have costs, yet i reduce the higher societal costs of fuel demand, traffic control, pollution, road maintenance, etc. Also, i am more productive on days i bike. Simple: Fund efficiencies.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
