Hours of Operation
Avenidas Door to Door is not providing volunteer rides at this time. Most of our volunteer drivers are seniors. We are providing monitored Lyft rides to and from medical appointments in our regular service area during our regular operating hours. (See Lyft’s Coronavirus Safety page for their safety precautions.)
Cost: amount charged by Lyft plus a $3 service fee, invoiced monthly. To schedule, call 650-289-5411 at least 48 hours in advance and leave a message.
New Door-to-Door Services
Free delivery of your groceries, prescriptions, and essential toiletries. (You order them: we pick them up.)
Check-in Phone Calls
Free! A Door-to-Door volunteer will call you to see how you’re doing and find out whether you need medication, groceries, or other essential supplies delivered.
Library Pick-Up & Drop-Off
Free! Check out books and movies from the library and we’ll pick them up for you. When you’re finished, let us know and we’ll return them.
