Q. When claiming mileage, do I measure from campus or home?
A. Mileage may be claimed from the employee’s home to a common carrier terminal (airport, train station) if the travel occurs during an employee’s non working hours or on regularly scheduled days off. Otherwise the employee must claim either the mileage from home or from the campus, whichever is less.
