Guaranteed Ride Home Benefit
Get home safely when plans change
Knowing that even the best-laid plans can change unexpectedly, Go! Vermont created Guaranteed Ride Home, a benefit for bus riders, vanpoolers, and carpoolers. If you face an unforeseen change of plans such as a work-related or family emergency that prevents you from taking the bus or traveling via your carpool, GRH reimburses travel fees up to $70.
Here’s how it works:
- In the event that you cannot travel via your carpool or bus route, use public transportation, a taxi, rental car or CarShare, and pay for it yourself.
- Send a copy of the original receipt(s), this Reimbursement Form, this W-9 Form, and a brief description of the situation to Go! Vermont Coordinator Daniel Currier at Dan.J.Currier@vermont.gov, or mail to:
VTrans Go Vermont Program
Barre City Place
219 North Main Street
Barre, VT 05641
- You will be reimbursed up to $70 within approximately three weeks of submitting your claim.
