ST. LOUIS — Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) is a safe ride home program for registered commuters through Citizens for Modern Transit when you need an emergency ride home.  

GRH is meant to minimize the chance of being "stuck at work" because of limited transit schedules, including express routes that only travel in one direction at certain times of the day. 

This program is a unique partnership with employers and employees to have a safe ride home when needed. 

During emergency situations in your personal life, unplanned overtime or sickness, these are eligible for a "guaranteed ride home." Trips including appointments, working late with at least one day prior notice and work site disruptions that affect the entire work site are not eligible.

Your employer must be participating in the program to sign up. Employers can enroll online in the free program. 

The GRH program can be included in an employee benefits package at no cost to the employer. 

Individuals who sign up for the GRH program and are provided through their employer can get up to 4 cab rides, transportation network company rides or Enterprise Rent-A-Car uses per year. 

Individuals will be reimbursed 80% of the cost of the trip, up to $60 to Citizens for Modern Transit. Registered commuters must cover a minimum of 20% of the cost for a ride home. 

To sign up for individual or employer enrollment, visit the Citizens for Modern Transit website.
