Mileage Reimbursement

The Denver Group allows carpool drivers to charge each passenger a mileage rate to defray expenses. It is suggested carpool trips follow the Denver Group guidelines in reimbursing the driver for car expenses.  The recommendation as of September 2009 is 30 cents per mile per car, so that all occupants in the car, including the driver, share in the mileage. However, some vehicles are more costly to operate and drivers are free to charge what they deem a fair rate.  (The Denver Group recommendation may differ slightly from other Groups.)
