RideshareKC's Guaranteed Ride Home program
A common reason for not participating in ridesharing programs or taking public transportation is a concern about becoming stranded at work in the event of illness, accident or emergency. RideshareKC offers a Guaranteed Ride Home service for eligible commuters. It provides a free taxi cab ride home from work in the case of emergency on a day that you use a commute alternative such as carpooling. The program resets annually at the beginning of the calendar year.

Operation Green Light operates nearly 700 traffic signals across the region. Its goals include:
- Managing and improving traffic flow.
- Improving air quality by reducing fuel consumption and vehicle emissions.
- Helping people get where they need to go faster.
