What to Know About REAL ID and Business Travel

If you often travel for business purposes or you are the travel organizer for an organization, then you may have heard that changes are underway about what acceptable identification can be used when flying domestically.

Beginning October 1, 2020, Pennsylvanians will need a REAL ID-compliant driver's license, photo ID card, or another form of federally-acceptable identification. While READ IDs are optional in Pennsylvania, you will have to provide an alternate form of federally-acceptable identification (valid passport, military ID, etc.) to board domestic, commercial flights

Why the ID Change?

The REAL ID Act, which passed in 2005 by the US Congress after the 9/11 Commission, strongly suggested standardizing government-issued identifications, setting minimum security standards for driver's licenses, which included machine-readable technology. The newly designed licenses will be required to access federal facilities, enter nuclear power plants, and board federally regulated commercial aircraft.

Acceptable ID's for Flying Domestically

TSA will continue numerous forms of acceptable ID for air travel within the US, including:

  • State-issued drivers licenses or other state photo ID cards
  • US passports and passport cards
  • DHS trusted traveler cards (Global Entry, NEXUS, SENTRI, FAST)
  • US military ID.
  • Green Cards
  • Border Crossing Cards
  • DHS-designated enhanced driver's licenses
  • Federally recognized, tribal-issued photo IDs
  • HSPD-12 PIV cards
  • Foreign government-issued passports
  • Canadian provincial driver's licenses or Indian and Northern Affairs Canada cards
  • Transportation worker identification credential

From our clients:

Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
Booked a limo for my kids and their friends for prom. We got an 8 passenger stretch Lincoln town car which was very nice. The limo was clean and very new looking. The exterior was clean and no blemishes. The driver was very courteous and attentive to details. My kids told me he was an excellent driver; he opened the door for them all the time and treated them like VIP's. Regency has great service, great drivers and in my opinion the most up to date vehicles. Also the pricing is exceptionally reasonable and affordable.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
