How does the program work?
You are eligible to be reimbursed for an emergency ride home if you work or go to college in Sonoma County and take an alternative mode of transportation other than to driving alone to work or campus.
If an unexpected circumstance arises (e.g., child is sick, bike was stolen, carpool partner unexpectedly left early, unscheduled mandatory overtime) you can be reimbursed for a ride home, via taxi, Uber, Lyft (or equivalent), car share, or rental car by submitting a reimbursement request.
Submit this form, including page 1 of the attached W-9 Form* and a copy of your receipt**, to SonomaERH@scta.ca.gov for reimbursement.
Each employee can be reimbursed for up to four ERH trips per year. No single trip can exceed $125 and total reimbursement may not exceed $500 per year.
