IE Commuter: The Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) offers a variety of commuter incentives for ridesharing (which includes telecommute, vanpool, carpool, bus, train, walk or riding your bike), commuter ride-matching assistance, and employer support services. Visit the IE Commuter website at this link.
Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH): Worried about ridesharing if you might need to go home suddenly or work late? Not a problem. Many employers provide a GRH to those who vanpool or rideshare, by providing a free ride home in the event of an unforeseen emergency, by way of taxi, car rental, or a transportation network company (such as Uber or Lyft). Talk to your employer rideshare representative or ETC. Should your employer participate in the IE Commuter GRH Program sponsored by RCTC, a Guaranteed Ride Home program may be available at your worksite.
