GRH will reimburse employees who need to take a taxi or a rental car for their emergency ride home, subject to limits, provided they have walked, biked or taken public transportation or a carpool/vanpool to work. You don’t have to live in Alameda County, you just have to work here. Best of all, this program, which is offered through the Alameda County Congestion Management Agency (ACCMA) is a free county benefit for employees.
