Emergency Ride Home

Even if you carpool, take the bus, bike, or walk to work, there is a way home in case of an emergency.

When you register your commute you become eligible for Emergency Ride Home, which covers the cost of a cab or rental vehicle if an emergency arises and you don’t have a car. You must register before the emergency to be eligible.

To register for an emergency ride home:

  • Register at GO! VERMONT if you live or work in Vermont. The benefit offers up to $70 per trip (maximum six times per year).
  • New Hampshire residents register at UPPER VALLEY RIDESHARE or call 802.295.1824 x204. The benefit offers up to $50 per trip (maximum six times per year).

Zipcars are also available in an emergency, but you must create an account in advance. You can rent cars hourly in two locations:

— Paige Heverly, Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator

Paige Heverly joined Vital Communities in 2017 as the Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator. Hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, she moved to Vermont in 2011 and earned a joint BA in Renewable Energy and Ecological Design and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. After completing her Master of Energy Regulation and Law from Vermont Law School, Paige worked in energy efficiency consulting in Portland, Oregon. Her love of local food systems, the White River, and the Green Mountains brought her back to the Upper Valley to work on regional issues with localized solutions. Paige is passionate about closing ecological loops and treating waste as food. In her free time, she enjoys baking homemade English muffins, weeding her garden, and writing letters to her pen pals.
