What is Emergency Ride Home?

The MORPC Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program is a free service that assures commuters using alternate forms of transportation to and from work that they won’t be stranded at work in the case of an emergency, illness, or unexpected overtime. It’s a foolproof benefit meant to ease your mind if you rideshare, bike, or bus to work and need to get home quickly.

Are you interested in joining the ERH program? Follow these instructions:
