You will also be signed up for the Department of Transportation’s Guaranteed Ride Home program. This means that the government will pay for your ride home (via Uber, Lyft or taxicab) in the event of certain emergencies when you are unable to take transit to get home. You can also use your FREE Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) if you have to work late unexpectedly and are unable to take your normal transit service. More information on the GRH program is available at GuaranteedRideHome.org
The Tracks2Uber program is being implemented by South Florida Commuter Services (SFCS), a program of the Florida Department of Transportation, in partnership with the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA) and Miami-Dade Transit (MDT). This initiative is a pilot study to help determine the long-term feasibility of using Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) to make the first and last mile connections of commuter rail trips. The outcome of this effort will help transportation decision makers better understand how including services, like Uber, to compliment regional commuter rail impacts costs, total travel time, ADA accessibility, ridership, convenience and public perception of regional commuter rail in South Florida.
