Travel update. USPS has updated GetThere, the online travel booking tool for Postal Service employees.
Employees are now the only individuals able to designate someone to arrange travel on their behalf. All previous “relationships” have been removed from GetThere.
To set up a travel arranger relationship, select “More tools,” followed by “Arranger settings,” then “My arrangers.” Next, select “Add a travel arranger.” Search for the person you want to delegate travel to, then select “Add.”
