Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) is a free commuter insurance program for commuters who use alternative modes of transportation within the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas at least two times a week. The program offers up to four free rides home per year to those who take transit, bike, walk, carpool, or vanpool in times when their usual transportation options are limited (e.g. illness, unscheduled overtime).

Commuter Choice Maryland is an incentive program that encourages Maryland employees to choose transit or vanpools instead of driving to work. Commuter Choice offers employers monthly pass distribution options which encourage employees to ride Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) CityLink, LocalLink, Commuter Bus, Light RailLink, Metro SubwayLink, and MARC Train for less than full fare. The program offers significant savings for commuters and a valuable addition to employer benefit packages.
The Commuter Connections Flextime Rewards program is available to commuters who are able and willing to commute during off-peak hours to avoid congestion along selected major corridors in the region.
Flextime programs allow employees at companies offering this option to adjust their arrival and departure times which is a proven way to reduce congestion at peak travel times. Employees can choose to work during their most productive hours.
Eligible commuters that register for the Flextime Rewards Program will receive notification of higher-than-average traffic congestion along the corridor on which they travel for work. Delaying your trip will enter you into a monthly prize drawing for a chance to win a cash prize from Commuter Connections.
