21.2 General Transportation Guidelines

Transportation consists of travel and related expenses that are necessary for a consumer to:

  • participate in a service provided by the CRS program under an Individualized Written Rehabilitation Plan; or
  • be assessed to determine eligibility.

Transportation of a consumer for any purpose must be by the most economical and effective carrier.

State law prohibits the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts from issuing a transportation warrant directly to a person who owes the state or federal government delinquent taxes or a defaulted debt (for example, a Texas Guaranteed Student Loan).

Transportation warrants are mailed directly to the consumer or third party payee. In exceptional circumstances and only with the CRS program manager’s approval, to the field office.
