The MORPC Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program is a free service that assures commuters taking alternative modes of transportation to and from work won’t be stranded in the case of an emergency, illness, or unexpected overtime. It’s a foolproof benefit meant to ease the minds of commuters who carpool or vanpool, bike, or take the bus to work and need to get home quickly.
Commuters will pay for their ride up-front and be reimbursed through the ERH program. Commuters can take an Uber, Lyft, Taxi Service, or any other licensed rideshare option. Rides, including a 20% tip, will be reimbursed up to $200. Receipts must be uploaded to gohiocommute.com for reimbursement.
ERH works on a point system. 1 point = 1 emergency ride home. You will redeem one point when you successfully submit a receipt for an emergency ride home reimbursement. You received four points when you signed up and you’ll automatically get four points each calendar year as long as you remain eligible.
