Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) is a free commuter insurance program for commuters who use alternative modes of transportation within the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas at least two times a week. The program offers up to four free rides home per year to those who take transit, bike, walk, carpool, or vanpool in times when their usual transportation options are limited (e.g. illness, unscheduled overtime).
Park & Ride Information
MDOT/SHA Park & Ride lots are free and can accommodate carpools and vanpools. No permits are required and the lots are open 24/7 unless otherwise noted. Overnight parking is permitted.
Commuter Choice Maryland is an incentive program that encourages Maryland employees to choose transit or vanpools instead of driving to work. Commuter Choice offers employers monthly pass distribution options which encourage employees to ride Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) CityLink, LocalLink, Commuter Bus, Light RailLink, Metro SubwayLink, and MARC Train for less than full fare. The program offers significant savings for commuters and a valuable addition to employer benefit packages.
The Center for Mobility Equity (CME, formerly Central Maryland Regional Transit) offers a travel training program that is designed to teach people the necessary skills to travel safely and independently on fixed-route public transportation. Travel training is primarily intended for individuals with disabilities, senior citizens, students, and low-income families.
