Senior Express Van Update
We are excited to announce that beginning October 1 the City of San Ramon will be contracting with MV Transportation to provide commercial drivers for the Express Van service to San Ramon senior residents. The Express Van service will not be changing its service. The Senior Express Van will run each morning and afternoon, as scheduled, with no service interruption, due to lack of volunteers.
Senior Express Van with the City Council
To kick-off the beginning of our new van service with MV Transportation, join us for the inaugural van rides in the morning with members of the San Ramon City Council, October 5-9. The City Council members will be aboard the van for pick-up service on these days. Be sure to sign up for the Express Van the day before the requested pick-up day.
