Good news from Rancho Bernardo Senior Services. They now have a list of drivers who have volunteered their time to drive seniors who are unable to walk to a bus stop, or who can no longer drive, who need transportation to the doctor or to grocery shop.
If you are unable to stop by Senior Services for a list of drivers, you may send them a self-addressed stamped envelope: RB Senior Services, 16769 Bernardo Center Drive, Suite K-14, San Diego 92128.
