An emergency ride home is the safety net that removes the “what ifs” from sharing a ride or using transit.
Registered commuters may arrange for an emergency ride home through the taxi, limousine or car rental provider of their choice due to unexpected overtime requests, a family or medical emergency, a carpool breakdown or a transit service interruption.
RideWise reimburses registered commuters for any out-of-pocket costs incurred when using a taxi or other transportation service.
The service is available to individuals who carpool, vanpool, take the bus/train or bicycle at least twice a week. Participants may only use the program on days when one of these travel options are used.
Participants must register for this program in advance prior to arranging for a ride. Registration confirmation will be provided by mail or e-mail.
