Take advantage of this free shared ride transportation program Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of each week. This service enables non-driving older adults to Get Up and Go to medical and dental appointments, or for errands such as food shopping. Personal or family caregivers may also be transported free of charge.
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, and handling some packages while shopping.
Registration is required, but PJCC membership is not necessary and there are no income or religious affiliation requirements. Reservations are required no later than the Wednesday in the week prior to the date transportation is needed. Call 650.378.2750 for information.

Get Up and Go Program Cancellations
Your health and safety is the PJCC’s highest priority.
The San Mateo County Department of Health issued recommendations to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Included in the recommendations was social distancing, with a goal of reducing the occasions when large numbers of people come together and potentially are exposed to the virus circulating in the community at large. Because of this, we are cancelling Get Up and Go Wednesday programs through April 7. We will contact registrants when we have more information.
Thank you for your understanding during this quickly evolving situation.
"Drivers are wonderful. I’m treated with courtesy and respect, and we have enjoyable conversations. [The service] is important to my life."
