Commute Rewards - Guaranteed Ride Home


Guaranteed Ride Home programs (GRH) also known as Emergency Ride Home programs, are offered by many counties and employers, and take the worry out of being stranded without a car. A GRH provides commuters who regularly carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or take transit to work with a reliable and FREE ride home - usually in a taxi or rental car - when unexpected emergencies arise.

Program details, including eligibility, logistics and types of emergencies covered, vary depending on which organization is offering the program. For info on a GRH program in your home or work county, view our County Rewards section. In general, GRH programs follow these guidelines:

  • Personal or family emergency or illness

  • Unexpected departure of carpool or vanpool partner(s)

GRH may not be used for:

  • Personal/pre-scheduled appointments (doctor/dentist)
