For personal emergencies

Guaranteed Ride Home is a program intended to help OHSU MyCommute members without a personal vehicle onsite to quickly leave an OHSU location in the Portland metro region via Lyft credit.

MyCommute members are OHSU members with a network ID and work or campus location within the TriMet service area, or telework.

Personal emergencies may be many possible scenarios. The key distinction for the Guaranteed Ride Home program is that hailing a ride is for a personal need and not a situation affecting the wider community. If many program members requested guaranteed rides home at the same time in severe weather, for example, this could create severe traffic congestion or expose drivers to unsafe driving conditions.
