Regional Guaranteed Ride Home Program

One of the most common concerns shared by commuters is being stranded without access to a car. The Regional Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) Program helps alleviate this concern by providing employees who rideshare to work with a reimbursed ride home in the event of a valid emergency. GRH is a free benefit offered to enrolled employers and their employees who carpool, vanpool, take transit, bicycle, or walk to work. Employers who have signed up to participate in the Regional GRH Program can confidently encourage employees to leave their cars at home and rideshare to work.
