Getting To & From (Part II)

In Partnership with DC Guaranteed Ride Home!

If you commute into the DC area and would love a few hours of time back (instead of using it to drive), and if you’d like to save some money (maybe for a vacation, maybe to help pay for your kid’s education) — this post might be of interest to you. Make sure you read the Part I post about the DC Ride Share program before you read this post!

Getting in Car

If you’re considering signing up and trying out the DC Ride Share program but have a few concerns about carpooling — like what happens if you have to work late? What happens if your child gets sick and you have to leave early? How will you get home?

Not to worry! If you are part of the rideshare program, you also benefit from Guaranteed Ride Home. So you don’t have to worry about getting home if you have an emergency, unscheduled overtime, or unexpected illness.


It’s available Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. for commuters who rideshare living/working in Washington or Baltimore areas. You can get all the details about the programs and sign up here. There’s no cost or commitment.
