In case of emergency, call a taxi (and get reimbursed).

If an emergency requires you to leave work early or stay late and you are a registered carpooler, vanpooler, bikepooler, or TARC rider within the nine-county KIPDA region, the Every Commute Counts Emergency Ride Home program is your way home. Whether you take a taxi, schedule a ride from Uber or Lyft, or use transit, Every Commute Counts will reimburse you 100% of the cost of your ride, including tip, up to 100 miles.

The program covers emergencies such as:

  • Your illness
  • Your child gets sick at school or daycare
  • A family crisis that requires your immediate attention
  • Unplanned mandatory overtime

When an emergency occurs, download an Emergency Ride Home reimbursement form, scan your receipt from the transportation company, and email it to the Every Commute Counts office. It’s that easy!

Your Emergency Ride Home means:

  • You may stop to pick up a child at school or daycare.
  • Taxi fares will be reimbursed 100% for trips up to 100 miles one-way.
  • You can use the Emergency Ride Home up to four times in any year.
