Volunteer Drivers Needed

Support Walnut Creek Recreation's Senior Transportation Program
by volunteering as a driver.

You can help Walnut Creek seniors get where they need to go - from doctors' appointments to grocery shopping to social events! The Senior Transportation Program offers over 3,000 rides per year thanks to volunteer drivers.

Drivers utilize a City owned Chevy Bolt for transporting passengers.

Drivers and passenger assistants volunteer for a regularly scheduled weekday shift of approximately 4 hours (Monday - Friday, either 8:30am-12pm for AM shift or 12:30-4pm for PM shift). Substitute drivers are also needed to fill in when regularly scheduled drivers are unavailable - this is a flexible commitment that depends on the program needs.

Application process:

  • Fill out a volunteer application and submit to reisinger@walnut-creek.org or by mail to 1375 Civic Drive, Walnut Creek, CA 94596
  • Schedule an in person or phone interview
  • Submit a driver’s history record from the DMV
  • Shadow another driver at least 2 times before starting your own shift
