VTA Guaranteed
Ride Home

When you use a sustainable commute option (e.g., transit, carpool, vanpool, bicycle) and need an immediate ride due to an unexpected workday event, you may be eligible for a reimbursed ride using Uber, Lyft, or another provider through the Santa Clara County VTA Guaranteed Ride Home program.

How it Works

The VTA Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) program is provided by Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), so commuters can feel at ease using a sustainable mode of transportation to work in Santa Clara County by reimbursing the cost to get home in the event of an emergency.

Registered participants are eligible to receive up to six reimbursements a year or $500 in total reimbursements, whichever comes first. Each qualified trip may be reimbursed up to $125. 

Joining and participating in the VTA Guaranteed Ride Home program is free. Register now.

VTA encourages employers based in Stanford Research Park to invite their employees to participate, and to reach out to VTA staff for GRH program information, presentation requests, and materials to distribute to their staff. Contact information:
