Essential workers who must continue to commute to work amid the pandemic lockdown are still assured a guaranteed free ride home should their transportation plans change.
Commuter Connections, the regional network of transportation organizations coordinated by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, continues to offer all of its usual services during this time of crisis, including the Guaranteed Ride Home for those enrolled in the transit or carpool or vanpool programs.
In addition to the usual requirements — such as setting up an account — face coverings are required for transit and guaranteed ride homes until further notice. Your safety and the safety of the driver are important.
What are other benefits of the Guaranteed Ride Home program? Members gain, above all else, peace-of-mind about making it home, and it’s a free program, which is what Commuter Connections is all about. (Some restrictions on the Guaranteed Ride Home program apply; see the website for details.)
New members can sign up for the program here or call 800-745-RIDE.
