A transportation and activity program for
older adults who do not drive
The Get Up & Go program provides a way for those who don't drive to be more independent through our transportation services. It also provides opportunities for older adults to participate in engaging activities with others.
Get Up & Go was nominated for the Jewish Community Federation's Program of the Year 2009.
Personalized Transportation Assistance
Take advantage of this low-cost shared ride transportation program Monday, Tuesday and Friday of each week. Escorts are provided as needed. This service enables non-driving older adults to “Get Up & Go” to medical and dental appointments, or for errands such as food shopping. Personal caregivers are transported free of charge.
In addition, if riders need a helping hand, volunteers are available to help with:
- Door-to-door Transportation
- Stepping on and off the bus
- Walking to destinations
- Handling cumbersome packages while shopping
- Taking notes at medical appointments or consultations
Reservations are required no later than the Wednesday in the week prior to the date transportation or programs are needed. Call 650.378.2750 for information.
