A Guaranteed Ride Home Program (GRH) is an incentive for commuters to travel to work by transit, bicycle, vanpool or other options rather than driving alone. It provides assurance to employees that they can get home and not be left at work if a situation arises.
The GRH a free taxi ride home from the office for employees who have an emergency arise on a day that they used alternative transportation. The program is offered as an added benefit for Vanpool and the EcoPass can also be purchased as a reasonably priced stand-alone service.
When an employee who uses alternative transportation has an emergency such as illness or an unexpected schedule change, GRH pays their cab fare home from the office, up to 100 miles one-way. It does not cover rides for pre-scheduled medical or other appointments, transportation due to a work-related injury, or other instances where transportation could have been scheduled in advance.
