How It Works

The Guaranteed Ride Home Program enables you to leave you car behind for your trip to work, helping reduce traffic and improve air quality in the Bay Area.

Already registered and need to use the program today? 

  • New participants can pre-register by clicking here: 

  • Once registered, when you use a qualifying mode of transportation to get to work and an emergency arises that interrupts your ability to get home, you can take advantage of the program by using a taxi, Transportation Network Company (TNC) service such as Lyft or Uber, rental car, or car sharing vehicle. Simply save your receipt and fill out a reimbursement form to be reimbursed for eligible trip expenses. You should expect to be reimbursed within 30 days.

  • To see definitions of qualifying modes of transportation and qualifying emergencies, click on Program Guidelines, below. 

  • Please note that the program pays only for your trip. You will need to pay the tip for the driver (10-15% is customary) or gas (if you use a rental car or car sharing vehicle).
