Thanks for the info...

Another kick in the a**. Thanks :down:
 
Do you know anything about furloughee travel benefits? I've found it very difficult to get any info regarding our "lifetime travel benefits".


Your best bet would be to contact the pass bureau. I'll send you a private message with one of the reps email address.
 
Quite a bit of this information has changed since this was written. Not sure where the poster got this but some is outdated, so beware using this as a guide.

This has been changed to early twenties I believe as Dougie felt 35 year olds can pay.

allegheny36, as a fellow retiree,
