Are you considering alternative transportation but concerned you won’t have a car if an emergency occurs? We have you covered with the Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program.
If you have an eligible emergency on a day you commuted to Stanford with alternative transportation, we will help you get home.
The ERH program is open to eligible non-resident students and university and hospital employees. The program ensures commuters using alternative transportation have a quick and easy alternative to get home in case of a personal emergency. You are allowed four (4) free rides per academic year (September 1 through August 31). Rules and policies of the ERH program may change without notification to eligible participants.
When an unforeseen emergency arises, call us at 650.723.9362.
Please note: Tips should not exceed 20% and should be based on the total that excludes tax, discounts, and fees.
Wait times for taxis may vary from 15 to 30 minutes. When meeting your taxi, ask the driver to confirm your name and destination to ensure we will cover your fare. The taxi should be dispatched by Yellow Checker Rainbow Cab.
If you meet all of the ERH eligibility requirements, follow the steps below to arrange a ride and ensure reimbursement:
If your situation does not qualify for the ERH program, but you still need quick transportation, consider using a Zipcar or rental car.
