If you’d like to be a bicycle commuter, but worry about getting home quick in a family crisis, check out the Emergency Ride Home program at South Florida Commuter Services. The program is available to commuters who carpool, vanpool, ride transit, bicycle, or walk to work at least three times a week. Commuter Services is the project that aids and promotes car-pooling and other alternatives to the personal car for transportation in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach Counties. They'll fill you in at 800-234-RIDE (that's 800-234-7344). Tell them we suggested you call, won't you?
