For many commuters, sharing the ride in a carpool or vanpool, taking transit, biking or walking to work means saving thousands of dollars each year. If you are taking one of these smarter ways to work, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government's (MWCOG) Commuter Connections is making it even smarter with Guaranteed Ride Home.
