The UCLA GME office is happy to offer reimbursement for round trip transportation costs to help ensure you, the hardworking trainee, get home safely after work! This reimbursement is available to any trainee that elect to use a transportation service to get home instead of drive their vehicle while fatigued.
The process is easy. Simply utilize the service of your choice (app-based such as Uber, Lyft, etc.) for the trip home, rest up and then use the service again to pick up your car at a later point in time. Email both receipts to the GME office within 30 days of the travel date, and we will reimburse the ENTIRE cost (except for tips)! Make sure to view the example, FAQS and reimbursement instructions below for important details about the program.
Please refer to the CIR/SEIU union agreement for further information.
Joe Bruin, a UCLA trainee, just finished service at Ronald Reagan and feels very fatigued. He decides it would be safer to take an Uber than “power through” the drive home. He Ubers to his home address in Santa Monica and rests for several hours. Later, he wakes up feeling more rested and Ubers back to retrieve his car from the parking garage at Reagan. He forwards both of his Uber receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days and the receipts are processed for reimbursement.
