A decision was requested concerning the rate payable for a monetary allowance in lieu of transportation for a member's dependents. Although the effective date for an increased monetary allowance in lieu of transportation rate became effective on July 1, 1974, the effective date for the change of station was before that date, and the dependents' monetary allowance must be computed at the old rate even though the actual travel occurred after implementation of the new rate.
