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.

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 some packages while shopping
Reservations are required no later than the Wednesday in the week prior to the date transportation is needed. Call 650.378.2750 for information.
