Why Should I come to the San Ramon Alcosta Senior and Community Center?
Need Transportation to the Alcosta Senior and Community Center?
Over 3000 van trips were completed last year to transport members to the Center. The Center Express Van picks people who otherwise would be sitting at home. Many older people can no longer drive and depend on the Center’s van to get them out of the house.
The van also takes people to shopping on Thursday mornings. It is the lifeline for some people to the outside world. If you would like more information on our van transportation please call the Senior Center at (925) 973-3250.
