Bay State Commute (NuRide)
Whichever green commuting option you choose, you will get rewards with Bay State Commute, formerly called NuRide. Whether walking and biking, taking transit or a vanpool, teleworking or compressed work weeks is your regular commute choice, Bay State Commute is a free and easy platform to reward yourself for something you already do.
Bay State Commute Service Update:
MassDOT’s funding for the Bay State Commute database will end with the expiration of the MassRIDES program on June 30, 2019. To ensure you have full access to all rewards currently available through Bay State Commute, MassDOT recommends you redeem your points before June 30, 2019.
Emergency Ride Home
Each year, employees of participating MassRIDES’ partners qualify for free trips home (up to four) though our Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program. MassRIDES reimburses employees up to $100/trip for qualified emergencies. Visit the ERH page to see if you qualify to participate.
Emergency Ride Home Program Update:
The Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program will be ending on April 30th, 2019. This will be the last day users may take any ERH-sponsored trips. To successfully receive reimbursements, users must submit all outstanding ERH reimbursement requests by May 15th, 2019, no exceptions. Please contact Jake.Leonard@dot.state.ma.us if you have any questions.
