Guaranteed Ride Home

You’ll never be stranded. If you carpool, vanpool, take transit, walk, or bike to work, you have a safety net with the Guaranteed Ride Home program.

Registered participants can get a free* ride home in a Yellow Cab Taxi or Enterprise Rent-A-Car up to three times per year in the event of:

  • Personal or family emergency
  • Unexpected overtime
  • Carpool or vanpool ride being unavailable due to unexpected schedule changes or vehicle breakdown 
  • Being stranded at work due to a bike problem, such as a flat tire, mechanical failure, vandalism, or theft

Rides must originate from your work location and may only be used to get home or to the location of the participant’s parked car (e.g., a park-and-ride lot, carpool partner’s home). The GRH program cannot be used for transit service disruptions and/or delays, a ride to work, personal errands, scheduled appointments, business-related travel, non-emergency side trips, or weather-related events.

*Please note, you must work in San Diego County to participate in the Guaranteed Ride Home program. Certain expenses are not covered by Guaranteed Ride Home.
