Emergency Ride Home

Need to get home in a pinch?

We offer an Emergency Ride Home for all commuters who use a commute alternative (Jibe Express, SacRT, bike, walk, carpool or vanpool) and are registered with Sac Region 511 and the Express Riders network.

Eligible users will be issued a voucher for use with Yellow Cab Company (for trips under 20 miles, or if you are too ill to drive) or through Enterprise Rent-A-Car (for trips over 20 miles). Jibe will cover the entire cost for a taxi or rental car, up to five times a year.

Valid Uses of the Emergency Ride Home Program:

  • An immediate family member has an emergency
  • A serious problem arises at your child's school or daycare
  • Fire or burglary damages your home
  • You are sick and can't wait for your normal ride home
  • Your carpool or vanpool partner has an emergency and you have no way to get home
  • Unscheduled, supervisor-approved overtime

The Emergency Ride Home Program May NOT Be Used For:

  • Personal errands
  • Business travel
  • Job-related injuries
  • Natural disasters (floods)
  • Medical or dental appointments
  • Missed ride home (vanpool, bus)
