GSA Updates Vehicle Reimbursement Rates

January 04, 2010

WASHINGTON - New federal government reimbursement rates for the use of privately-owned vehicles while on official business became effective Jan. 1, according to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).

The 2010 privately owned vehicle reimbursement rates are:

  • Automobile - $0.50/mile.
  • Motorcycle - $0.47/mile.
  • Airplane - $1.29/mile.

Developed by GSA in consultation with the Department of Defense, the Department of Transportation, and government employees' union representatives, the rates reflect an extensive market-based analysis of the cost of operating privately owned automobiles, motorcycles, and airplanes used for government business. 

GSA is mandated by law not to exceed the single standard mileage rate for automobiles established by the Internal Revenue Service.

Additional information about the 2010 privately owned vehicle reimbursement rates and how they are determined is available at www.gsa.gov/mileage.
