CSULB students and employees who travel to campus by car can be apprehensive about switching to sustainable transportation due to fears of being stranded in the event of an emergency or illness. Additionally, those currently using sustainable transportation modes have nervousness around such events.
The Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) program was designed to alleviate these concerns by providing students* and employees who rideshare to work with complimentary rides home in the event of a qualified emergency. GRH is a free benefit offered to commuters who choose to carpool, vanpool, take public transit, bicycle, or walk to campus.
If you are without a car and experience a valid emergency, the GRH Program will cover your ride expenses, up to 2 times per fiscal year (July 1-June 30).
*Students must be actively participating in the monthly Rideshare Rewards program to be eligible for the guaranteed ride home benefit. “Actively” is defined by having posted a minimum of one ride per week on the commute calendar for the previous four weeks at the time of the request.
More information on this program is available at Guaranteed Ride Home.
