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.

senior assistance PJCCPersonalized Transportation Assistance

Take advantage of this shared ride transportation program Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, 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 or family caregivers may accompany without an additional intake.

In addition, if riders need a helping hand, volunteers are available to help with:

  • Door-to-door transportation
  • Stepping into and out of the vehicle
  • 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.

  • Your children have moved to the far reaches of the country…
  • You feel isolated and alone…
  • You don’t drive anymore…
  • You’re on a fixed income and can’t afford to take a cab to your medical appointments or to go grocery shopping…


Volunteer to be part of the team of Get Up & Go, the PJCC’s award -winning transportation and socialization program for older adults who no longer drive.

  • Volunteer Drivers

    In the comfort of your own car, drive adults 50 or over to medical appointments or to the market for groceries.

    Driver Requirements: Clean driving record, reliable car, a few hours a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays. Occasional availability is fine.

What's in it for you?

  • Satisfaction of helping frail seniors stay in their homes instead of moving to an institution.
  • Joy in “giving back” to someone who needs help.
  • Opportunity to get to know interesting and experienced people.
  • Being productive in your spare time.
