We understand the difficulties commuters face when they carpool or vanpool. In our efforts to keep car/vanpools rolling, we have recognized that it is common for passengers to be concerned how they will get home if their driver has to leave work early or stay late due to an emergency. Additionally, the passenger may have their own personal emergency requiring an early ride home or a work related emergency causing him/her to work later than the scheduled ride home with the driver. To allay these fears we provide the free Emergency Ride Home Program (ERH).
To participate in the ERH program you must be registered for ERH with the Hudson TMA. If you are not already registered, please complete this online form which is safe and secure. You can also register by phone or mail.
I recognize that participation in the Emergency Ride Home program is strictly voluntary. I understand that neither the ERH Program, nor the Rideshare Program, nor the Hudson TMA, nor the Hudson County Improvement Authority (HCIA) undertake to provide transportation services to me as a participant, but only to pay for transportation services. I further understand and agree that the delivery at destination, timeliness, safety, and condition of the transportation service which the ERH Program undertakes to pay for are the sole responsibility of the taxicab/limo/car service operator and not the Rideshare Program, the Hudson TMA, or the HCIA. Neither the Rideshare Program nor the Hudson TMA, nor the HCIA, assumes any liability with respect to such transportation service in these or any other particulars which the undersigned or any third person, and the representatives thereof, have or may have against the Hudson TMA, and the HCIA, and its/their officers, agents and/or employees, by reason of any accident, illness, injury or death, or damage to or loss or destruction of any property, arising directly or indirectly from my participation in the ERH Program. I agree to hold harmless, release and forever discharge the Hudson TMA, and the HCIA its/their officers, agents and/or employees from and against any and all claims and demands whatsoever.
