Guaranteed Ride Home
Guaranteed Ride Home (otherwise known as GRH) provides commuters who regularly (twice a week) carpool, vanpool, bike, walk or take transit to work with a FREE and reliable ride home when one of life’s unexpected emergencies arise.
Commuters may take advantage of GRH up to four times per year to get home for unexpected emergencies such as a personal illness or a sick child. GRH can also be used for unscheduled overtime when your employer mandates that you must stay late.
GRH is designed to rescue commuters who are worried about how they’ll get home when an emergency arises. Knowing there’s a guaranteed ride home allows one to use commuting options like transit and carpools with peace of mind and confidence.
Best of all, the GRH service is FREE!

The Guaranteed Ride Home program is currently in operation during the Coronavirus pandemic.
To help prevent the spread of the virus, the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia have announced the following measures for taxicab and Transportation Network Company operators and riders:
District of Columbia
As of June 3, 2020, the District of Columbia has entered Phase One of the reopening process. Complete guidelines are posted on the coronoavirus.dc.gov website. Passengers are asked to wear cloth face coverings while in a vehicle. This recommendation also extends to taxi/rideshare operators, who are also required to wear gloves and to sanitize their vehicles regularly. Ride providers in the District of Columbia may lawfully reject service to individuals who do not adhere to these regulations. Likewise, a GRH rider may request a different ride provider by calling 1-800-745-RIDE if an operator does not appear to be adhering to the DC regulations.
As Maryland begins implementing its “Roadmap to Recovery” plan, policies relating to GRH are contained within Governor Hogan’s Executive Order 20-04-15-01, which requires taxi/rideshare riders and operators to wear facemasks. This order is effective beginning 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 18, 2020 and will remain effective until otherwise noted. Ride providers in Maryland may lawfully reject service to individuals who do not adhere to these regulations. Likewise, a GRH rider may request a different ride provider by calling 1-800-745-RIDE if an operator does not appear to be adhering to the Maryland regulations.
Governor Northam and the Virginia Department of Health are requiring face coverings be worn in public settings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, which includes taxicabs. This requirement is noted in Executive Order 63, which is part of the Governor’s Phase 1 re-opening plan.
