    • Service members in transit from select areas where no prior BAH rate exists.

    What is BAH Reserve Component/Transit (BAH RC/T)?

    BAH RC/T is a housing allowance for service members where the specific location isn’t a factor in the dollar figure. It applies to circumstances like reservists on active duty for 30 or fewer days or when you’re traveling to an area where no prior BAH rate exists.
