The Avenidas Door to Door transportation program will take you wherever you need to go, safely and on time! Our drivers are sensitive to the mobility and sight limitations that some individuals may have and will gladly escort people to and from the car and ensure that seat belts are securely fastened. A spouse or a caregiver may accompany the rider at no additional charge. Our vetted volunteer drivers, who may be supplemented by Lyft drivers, will take you anywhere within a 12-mile radius of Avenidas.
Here’s how it works:
- To schedule a ride, simply call (650) 289-5411 at least 48 hours (and up to five weeks) in advance. Same day service with Lyft can be requested for an additional fee.
