A Free Ride Can be Had

Did you know if you get stuck without a car Alameda County can help you out?

If you decided to skip using the car and something went wrong, the Alameda County Guaranteed Ride Home Program guarantees any Alameda County employee a free ride home from work if an emergency arose after they made the effort to avoid commuting alone in a car.

The county wants everyone who works here to feel comfortable taking the bus, train, or ferry, carpooling, vanpooling, walking, or bicycling to work, knowing that a ride home is available if an unexpected circumstance arises.

The process is easy. Simply submit a receipt to be reimbursed for using a taxi, Transportation Network Company service such as Lyft or Uber, rental car, or car sharing vehicle.

To begin using the service, register at http://grh.alamedactc.org.
