SamTrans seeks mobility volunteers

The SamTrans Mobility Ambassador Program is looking for volunteers to help older adults and people with disabilities navigate the Bay Area's public transportation systems.

After completing a training program, volunteers provide free assistance to those traveling via SamTrans services, including teaching how to read maps and timetables, find bus stops, make connections and calculate fares.

Mobility Ambassadors must have an active email account and be at least 18 years old. Those who volunteer an average of 16 hours per month and attend quarterly meetings receive free monthly SamTrans bus passes.

Email ambassadors@samtrans.com or call 508-6362 for an application.

If Samtrans in their infinite wisdom did not take buses away from people and leave them to walk very far to catch a bus, maybe
rediwheels would not have an overflow problem.
