Updates to DTS User Interface Coming 1/19

(updated January 17, 2018) In January 2018, DoD will begin implementing a series of DTS software updates that will modernize the look and feel of the Defense Travel System (DTS), and improve navigation and usability.  The initial update will include the DTS homepage/login screen, privacy page, document listing, and reservation screens.  It will bring new graphics and an improved layout aimed at making it more user friendly, easier to navigate and view reservation options, and to track your progress in building a travel authorization. 

The initial January release will be implemented using a phased approach according to the following schedule. 

  • January 19, 2018:  All DTS users will have access to the redesigned DTS homepage/login page, privacy page, and document listing (after login).  All changes including the redesigned reservations screens are available in EWTS.   
  • January 20 at 1800 ET: The redesigned reservation screens will be pushed to designated organizations as part of a limited-user group.  DTAs/AOs and travelers in the limited-user group will be notified that their organizations are participating and when they should expect to see the new reservation screens. 
  • February 2, 2018:  The redesigned reservation screens will be available for all remaining DTS organizations. 

(Note: Please note that those organizations that use Import/Export will not have access to the redesigned reservations screens until a future software release.)

To get a better understanding of what is changing, the following resources are available:

  • Bi-weekly Travel Assistance Center Outreach Calls for DTAs – Calls are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month. For instructions on how to participate or to view slides from past calls, see the TAC Outreach announcement posted in Travel Explorer, (  The next call is scheduled for Tuesday, January 22, 2018.

This announcement will be updated as more information becomes available.
