CATA Emergency Ride Home Extended to Bicyclists

This new bike-commuter benefit just in from Joe Fedewa, CATA’s Clean Commute manager:

If you have a long-distance bicycle commute at least 3 days a week, you may be eligible! The CATA Clean Commute Options’ Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program now gives you the confidence to commute by bike and still get home in an emergency.

It’s FREE and EASY to get started. Click here to apply for ERH service now! If qualified for the ERH program, you will receive a pair of vouchers every 6 months. If your bicycle breaks down, you get caught in a storm, or any other unplanned circumstance in which you cannot commute home by bike, simply redeem a voucher for a rental car pickup at your workplace or at the nearest Enterprise Rent-A-Car location and get home safely. (The step-by-step directions for use are written on the vouchers themselves)

To participate in the Emergency Ride Home program, you must be actively commuting via bicycle at least 3 days a week. Vouchers may only be redeemed on these days. The program is intended for commuters traveling into the region from an area well beyond any CATA fixed-route bus service. ERH applications will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis.
