New emergency ride home program available for faculty and staff

Elon’s Emergency Ride Home Program reimburses eligible faculty/staff commuters for qualified emergency rides home.

The Office of Sustainability is excited to announce a pilot Emergency Ride Home Program for faculty and staff.  This program reimburses eligible faculty/staff commuters for a qualified emergency ride home a maximum of four times in a fiscal year.

To be eligible for Elon’s Emergency Ride Home Program, participants must:

  • Be a part-time or full-time employee
  • Have carpooled, biked, walked, taken the train or a bus to work on the day a ride is needed

The Emergency Ride Home Program is available for faculty/staff commuters when:

  • They or an immediate family member gets sick or has a crisis
  • Their carpool driver has to unexpectedly leave early or stay late
  • They must work unscheduled overtime
