Terms and Conditions:
I understand the guidelines of the Emergency Ride Home Program. I am eligible to use this program by traveling to work at least one day per week using an alternative mode of transportation. I understand that I can be reimbursed for up to two rides per calendar year, and that the rides are to be used during work hours, and only on days when I have used an alternative mode of transportation for my commute. By clicking the "Submit" button, I agree to comply with the conditions of this program and hereby release Ecology Action from any liability, claims, and demands for personal injury, loss, theft, or damage to my personal property; loss of income, consequential damage resulting from delays or absence of a taxi/ride hail, or termination of the program. Emergency Ride Home Procedures:
On preregistering with Ecology Action, the employee will receive a reimbursement form. The reimbursement form must be signed by employee and the employee transportation coordinator, supervisor, or administrative staff associated with this program. For each year that an employee elects to use alternative transportation, two reimbursements can be dispensed.
In an emergency, the employee can hail an Uber/Lyft, call a taxi, ride the bus, rent a JUMP bike, or rent a car if applicable (each employee who uses this program is responsible for following the proper internal company procedures which apply to leaving the workplace during a work shift.)
On reaching their destination, the employee needs to save a valid ride receipt from the transportation option selection. Once a valid receipt accompanying a completed and signed reimbursement form is submitted, Ecology Action will reimburse employee for the full cost of the ride.
Ecology Action or the member employer has the right to verify the trip purpose of any ride taken under this program. Abuse of the program may result in disciplinary action and/or expulsion from this program or other programs offered by Ecology Action. Exclusions:
This program is not designed for your personal use for errands, pre-planned medical appointments, business-related travel, or working late without a supervisor’s request.
Transportation to a doctor or hospital resulting from an on-the-job injury is not covered by this program. Your company has separate procedures for worker’s compensation incidents.
In the event of a major area disaster, this service is not available. It is wise to make advance transportation arrangements to apply in the case of a major area disaster.
For more details and information, contact Ecology Action, your Employee Transportation Coordinator, or your supervisor.
Any person who is diagnosed or exposed to COVID-19 may not use this service.
