Transit agency launches emergency ride program

Posted on February 15, 2006

Solano County (Calif.) transportation officials announced this week a new program that will offer free emergency rides to consistent public transportation commuters.

The Emergency Ride Home Program provides commuters free vouchers for a cab ride or rental car to get home in the case of an emergency or unforeseen circumstances.

"It's new for Solano County, but not a new concept in general," said Elizabeth Richards, Solano Transportation Authority's director of transit and rideshare services. "We found this to be very accessible and it provides a safety net."

According to the Vallejo Times-Herald, recent polls suggest that many commuters don't use public transportation because they want their vehicle in case of emergency.
