There are many things to consider when deciding whether or not to use alternative commute options. RideshareKC’s Guaranteed Ride Home program aims to make that decision easier by offering two free rides home per year in case of emergency.
If you regularly take the bus, carpool, vanpool or ride a bike to work, register for the Guaranteed Ride Home program and we’ll get you home in case of an emergency or illness — day or night, weekday or weekend.
Here’s how it works:
- You must be registered with the program three days prior to your first ride.
- You can take up to two free rides per year.
- After initial registration, you must update your contact information once a year.
- When you need a ride home from work, simply call a taxi or use a transportation service like Uber or Lyft. Pay for the ride, then submit a reimbursement form within 10 days. If you are unable to pay for a ride in advance, contact RideshareKC staff at 816-842-RIDE (7433) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or email Rideshare@marc.org.
