Your safety net for green commuting.
There’s no question that pursuing alternative transportation modes to get to work is good for the environment, your health, and your wallet. However, a big concern for most people that want to do something other than drive alone is what to do in the event of an emergency. This is why Ecology Action and its partners have created the RideSurance Program – “Your safety net for green commuting”. We call it RideSurance because we’re talking about commuters using green, sustainable commute options such as carpooling, vanpooling, transit, bicycling, and walking, with the assurance that you can still get home quickly in the event of an unforeseen emergency. Simply put, we’re talking about insurance and peace of mind for those choosing to pursue green forms of commuting.
RideSurance is available to anyone who lives or works in Santa Cruz County for a low annual fee*. This program can provide emergency transportation during your regularly scheduled work shift for the following approved purposes:
1. You or a member of family is ill.
2. You or a family member has a crisis
3. Your employer asks you to work longer than your regular shift without advance notice
4. Your carpool driver had to leave early
*Please note: If you work for an employer in Santa Cruz County that belongs to Ecology Action's "Transportation Membership Program," you may already be covered for RideSurance services. Find the current list of member organizations here.
Ecology Action would like to thank our partners and funding sources for making this program possible: Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission, the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District, and the Pajaro Valley Transportation Management Association.
