I have heard the expression ¨meal ticket¨ ¨(or ¨meal voucher), but it´s extremely rare and you would probably have to explain it. It would be good/valid only in a specific restaurant or cafeteria, possibly owned by the same company that is giving the ¨meal ticket¨. It is not a payment to the recipient but rather more or less a ticket.
(This is your meal ticket. Our cafeteria will accept it in payment for your lunch.¨)
And I have heard the expression ¨bus voucher¨. Again, the expression is rarely used and you would need to explain to the recipient what it is and how to use it. Again, it is not a payment to the recipient but rather more or less a ticket.
(¨Give this to the bus driver in payment for your ride into Downtown.¨)
If out of the area meals and transportation are going to be paid for by the company, the usual practice is for the employee to present the receipts, dates, times, purpose of trips, starting and stopping points, etc. He would be reimbursed probably during the following pay period.
