Last July, “Got Wheels” ride service was launched providing subsidized on-demand taxi rides in partnership with Serra Yellow Cab to Daly City residents 70 years and older. On May 19, 2020, the San Mateo Board of Supervisors approved a proposal expanding the program to include Colma and Brisbane residents starting on July 1, 2020.
Applicants are required to complete a registration form and wait to be contacted Peninsula Family Services – see below. If approved, you will receive a membership card and will need to arrange and pay for each ride. Each one-way ride is $5.00.
If you are interested you will need to act fast, for there are only twenty-five (25) available slots for applications from residents of Colma and Brisbane: First come, first serve.
The program provides 6 rides a month point to point in the service area. Members may arrange for rides 24/7; they may take up to 3 companions free of charge regardless of age and town of residence (provided they get on and off the cab at the same address as the member). There is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document on the Town’s website for more information about the program.
Peninsula Family Service is a nonprofit organization, strengthening families in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties since 1950. Please visit www.peninsulafamilyservice.org. You will find Got Wheels! in Older Adults programs.
