Statewide Travel Program

The Statewide Travel Program assists government travelers' needs by obtaining the most economical rates and fares available through the use of contracted travel-related services. By leveraging the state's total travel spend, the state gains the advantage of the best pricing model available.

The program is also extended to the following government entities: cities, counties, special districts, California state universities, California community colleges, K-12 public school districts. To participate in the program and benefit from the contracted travel-related services, you must be enrolled in the program.  Contact the STP staff (PDF) for more information.
