MassRIDES Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program supports commuters who commute green with a free ride if an unexpected emergency arises. It is “commuter insurance” for those who carpool, take transit, bicycle, walk or vanpool to work. Participants simply take a taxi, transit, rental car or get a ride from a co-worker in the event of an emergency, submit a reimbursement request afterwards, and MassRIDES will reimburse the individual up to $100 for the cost of getting home.
How Do I Get Reimbursed?
- Complete a Trip Detail Form on the right-hand side of this page and attach a scanned copy of your receipt (if applicable). When completed, please select ‘Submit.’
- You will receive an email confirming your trip has been submitted to the ERH coordinator through your employer. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive an e-mail from MassRIDES in your inbox shortly.
- Your employer will receive an email with your trip details and then will either approve the trip or request more information from you.
- Once your trip is approved, your Trip Details report will be emailed to MassRIDES for approval and payment.
MassRIDES will create a check to be mailed to the address that you provided in your ERH registration. Payments can be expected within 30 days following approval.
