Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH)

GRH provides employees who commute via public transit, carpool or bike with guaranteed transportation home in the event of a personal emergency.  This peace of mind encourages many employees to more likely utilize alternative commute modes.

GRH programs were developed to reduce traffic congestion through the reduction of single occupant vehicle trips.  The GRH program offers the final incentive for commuters who are on the fence about leaving their car at home.  The program provides an invaluable resource of free, back-up transportation.

  • GRH is easy to implement
  • provides a low cost employee benefit, that can be easily included in new employee benefit packages
  • supports recruiting and retention goals
  • increases employee satisfaction and commitment
  • reduces employee turnover
  • demonstrates that employers care about employees' well-being and are willing to provide support services
  • decreases the amount of parking an employer needs to provide
