Take advantage of this free shared ride transportation program Monday through 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.
The health and well-being of our riders and our drivers is our utmost concern. With this in mind:
• Plexiglass dividers have been installed in our minivans (one with a manual wheelchair ramp).
• Both drivers and riders must wear face coverings at all times in the vehicles.
• Extra time is scheduled between passengers for the driver to disinfect surfaces.
• Riders are asked COVID-19 screening questions during both the scheduling and confirmation calls.
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.
Our office staff are primarily working from home but are checking the Get Up & Go line regularly. Please call 650.378.2750 for any ride requests, cancellations or other questions. Your call will be returned within one business day. When you leave a message, please include as much information as possible.
