Common Ground Senior Services To Discontinue The Silver Streak Transport Program Effective June 30, 2024.

As of June 30, 2024, Common Ground will discontinue its Silver Streak Transport Program.  We recommend contacting your county’s Dial-A-Ride programs for flexible and cost-effective transport alternatives.  We urge individuals to register with their county’s Dial-A-Ride program promptly in order to secure transportation for medical appointments after June 30th.

The staff at Common Ground extends our heartfelt gratitude to each individual for the privilage of serving and for the support received over the years.  For inquiries, feedback, or concerns regarding these essential services, please reach out to the Area 12 Agency on Aging at (209) 532-6272.

 

Mobility means having transportation services going where and when YOU need it

The availability of reliable transportation is an important social determinant of health in our rural communities.  Transportation influences a person’s ability to access appropriate and well-coordinated healthcare, purchase nutritious food, and otherwise care for themselves.

Sliver Streak Transports is a committed and reliable transportation program that provides rides to health and wellness appointments in Amador, Calaveras, and Tuolumne Counties.

SPECIAL RIDERSHIP PROGAM

This program offers 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.  

Transports are available for out-of-county non-emergency medical appointments, based on schedules and availability of drivers.

Please Note:  These rides may be shared with others.
