For older adults who can no longer drive, trying to get to a needed doctor’s appointment, pick up a prescription, go to the grocery store, or even check the post office box for mail can be a struggle.

Having access to transportation is a key to independent living for everyone, especially seniors living in our rural communities.  

Silver Streak Transport services residents living in Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties. This program is operated by Common Ground Senior Services and provides rides to residents unable to utilize traditional transportation options, such as public transit, and have no other means of transportation for health and wellness appointments.

This program also provides transportation for grocery shopping, trips to the post office, or other needed errands, based on availability of drivers.

In addition, transports are available for out-of-county non-emergency medical appointments.

Please note:  these rides may be shared with others.


Drivers are needed to assist older adults, veterans, and disabled clients in Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties.

This position is available as a F/T or P/T paid employee or volunteer.

Must be 21 and over, have a valid CA driver’s license, a clean DMV printout, and clear a background check and drug screening.

What Our Riders Are Saying

Thanks for your help with Vickie’s medical transportation needs.  You can see the smile you guys help put on her face.

Thanks again.


Thank you so very much for your kind efforts in procuring transportation for my husband on such short  notice.  It was very important that we keep that appointment at the Palo Alto VA Medical facility but I couldn’t drive it and neither could Floyd.  . . . our driver (Christoffer) was well able to handle it all.  He was excellent.  And he willingly watched our little dog, Lottie, while we were in our appointment.  We were tired at the end of the day but were very glad we decided to try Common Ground S.S.
