The Trusted Traveler program, in which valid DOD ID cardholders can vouch for up to 7 occupants in their vehicle, is reinstated randomly. At any time for any reason without announcement, the program may be suspended. All occupants aged 18+ in vehicles entering the post should always be prepared to present valid identification.


Automated Installation Entry - now being used at gates

Effective Sep. 14, Fort Riley is using the new access control system — Automatic Installation Entry. The initial ID card scan at access control points registers that card in the system to screen access to the post. This process could take slightly longer the first time and may cause short delays at access control points during the first few days of using the new system. Security personnel will scan the back of the ID card, rather than the fron, so drivers are asked to be prepared. Service members, dependents, DOD Civilian professionals and DOD retirees will experience this transition without any requirement to stop by the Visitor Control Center.

Those with long term passes will need to update their information within the AIE system at the Visitor Control Center before Dec. 1. Contractors working on post and those with Veteran Health Identification Cards (VHIC) will be required to register their cards in the AIE system at the Visitor Control Center prior to coming on post. The Visitor Control Center is located near Henry Gate, at Exit 301 off I-70.

For more information, call the Visitor Control Center at (785) 239-2982.

Real ID Act

The REAL ID Act is a federal policy which establishes minimum security standards for license issuance and production and prohibits Federal agencies from accepting for certain purposes driver’s licenses and identification cards from states not meeting the Act’s minimum standards. The purposes covered by the Act are: accessing Federal facilities, entering nuclear power plants, and, boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft. If your state is out of compliance with Real ID, you may be required to show additional forms of identification before being granted access to Fort Riley.
