Emergency Guaranteed Ride Home (EGRH)
Commute Alternatives, a program of the Association for Monterey Bay Area Governments (AMBAG), provides a guaranteed ride home in an emergency to registered users who use alternative transportation to get to work. The EGRH program is available to commuters who live or work in Monterey County and who ride the bus, carpool, vanpool, ride a bicycle or walk to work at least one day a week. In order to participate, you must register with Commute Alternatives by calling (831) 422-7665. This service will reimburse up to $60 for a taxi or rental car in case personal illness, sick family member, a serious problem at a child’s school or day care, or if you must unexpectedly work late.
