The Guaranteed Ride Program provides Shore Line East Monthly ticket holders with up to four (4) free rides per year in the event of an unplanned emergency, such as illness, family crises, or having to work late unexpectedly. We will provide a full coverage, free-of-charge ride to your departing train station, home, or wherever you may need to go – so you can stop worrying and enjoy the ride.

How to get your free Guaranteed Ride:

  • Call 1-877-CTrides (1-877-287-4337) weekdays between 5 a.m. and 11 p.m., and weekends and holidays from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Communicate the serial number and monthly train ticket type (Shore Line East or UniRail), as well as the reason for your ride.
  • We will arrange for a taxi to pick you up and take you to your destination. Your fare, plus a gratuity, will be covered at no cost to you.
