We want to encourage more people to carpool, vanpool, ride transit, walk or bike to and from work and school instead of driving alone. We are aware, though, that sometimes unplanned or emergency situations come up while you are at work or school and you are unable to respond as-needed because transportation decision making is out of your hands.
For example, you carpooled with someone and he/she cannot leave work right now to take you to take care of your emergency. Or you are working on that big project, and the boss needs you to work late and gave you no advanced notice. The GRH program exists for those very reasons.
The government will pay for your Lyft ride or taxicab fare to get you home. You don’t come out of your pocket at all. To be eligible for GRH, simply register with us and let us know if you carpool, vanpool, ride transit, walk or bike to work/school at least three times per week.
