What is an Emergency Ride Home?Avenues in Motion offers a program for commuters who rideshare or take an alternative commute (carpool, vanpool, bicycle or mass transit) and need a ride home due to an emergency or unexpected illness. This program is a commuter’s safety net in cases of overtime for a carpool partner, illness, child’s illness, or other emergency.

  • Participating employee must ride-share or bike on average of 3 times per week.
  • ERH usage is limited to two (2) times per year per person.
