The cost, $3.00 each way, is subsidized by contributions from the community and Ride-On. Rides are limited to once a month due to current funding levels. Call (805) 541-8747 to make reservations for rides, 2 to 3 days before your appointment.

Ride-On has sixteen years of assisting social service agencies find transportation for their clients. We now have a Mobility Coordinator who is dedicated to meeting the transportation challenges for seniors, people with disabilities, children, and other people served by social service agencies.

Agricultural Workers Vanpool

The Agricultural Vanpool program is designed to provide transportation for workers living or working in San Luis Obispo County.

The program was developed to benefit the farmworker communities across the county by providing safe, reliable, and affordable transportation to their worksites. The daily fare for this alternative method of transportation is as low as $3.00 per day and varies based on the amount of miles traveled to each worksite.

The potential driver will be asked to obtain a driving record printout (H-6) from the DMV to determine insurability, coordinate pick up and drop off times for the passengers, and collect fares from the passengers. The driver may not be a manager or in the position of hiring or firing the vanpool passenger. The driver position is not paid; however, he would be exempt from paying fares.

For more information about the Agricultural Workers' Vanpool Service, call the AgVan Coordinator at (805) 541-8747. Se habla espanol.
