Carpooling is a great way to get to and from campus. Mason encourages employees and students to use alternative transportation such as carpooling to help the university curb its carbon emissions and decrease traffic on campus.
Employees can choose from TWO carpool programs and students have a carpool program tailored to student needs.
Employee Guarenteed Ride Home (GRH) Program
The GRH program is designed for employees who rideshare (carpool/vanpool), use mass transit (bus, train), bicycle, or walk to work at least two times a week. It is absolutely free to sign-up for and free to use. Once you register you can use the GRH service up to four times a year. Your year will begin once you register for the program. If a qualifying emergency arises (such as sudden illness of a family member, school closing, etc.) on a day that you use an alternative commute mode to get to work, call Commuter Connections @ 1-800-745-RIDE and select option #2. Commuter Connections will send a taxi cab out to George Mason to pick you up! IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU REGISTER FOR THE GRH PROGRAM PRIOR TO USING THIS SERVICE!
