Transportation expenses for employed clients who have not yet received their first paycheck are covered at the most reasonable and least costly rate. Ongoing job-related transportation expenses are covered under the 3/4 earned income deduction (see PM 08-01-02).
Under special circumstances, payment for job-related transportation expenses may be made after the client receives their first paycheck to ensure the client keeps their job. Supervisory approval is required.
