The Cambria Community Bus always needs volunteer drivers. There are no special license requirements. A prospective driver needs a valid Class C license (this is the most common license) and a good driving record. Training will be provided and takes about 8 hours with most of that time being hands on behind the wheel in the bus. Drivers determine their own driving days and whole and half days are available. It is a wonderful way to give back to our community!
If you want to volunteer to drive or just need more information about driving,
call Tony Church at 1 (805) 927-1442 or Warren Gay at 1 (805) 440-2870.
The Cambria Community Council transportation system, known locally as “The Cambria Community Bus” provides local door to door service for seniors (persons over 60) and disabled persons within the Cambria-San Simeon area. Multiple stops are not only allowed but encouraged. All rides are free. A dispatcher answers the dispatch phone between 9am and 11am Monday through Friday. If you call outside these hours, you may leave a message.
Persons needing a ride must call the dispatcher 1 (805) 927-4173 at least one day prior to the scheduled ride. Each bus is equipped with a cell phone to assist in schedule adherence and process any additions or deletions to the daily schedule. The service operates one bus locally on weekdays, Monday through Friday, between 8am and 4:30pm.
Currently, because of lack of demand, there is only one bus scheduled for out of town trips to San Luis Obispo and this occurs on the second Tuesday of each month. These trips are used primarily for shopping, however, medical appointments have priority seating. For this service to operate we require a minimum of four riders, so if you are interested please contact our dispatcher. If we find that there is sufficient interest we will consider adding other departures. Our buses are ADA equipped and our drivers will provide assistance if necessary for riders entering and exiting the bus, as well as transporting packages and groceries into the rider’s home. All drivers are volunteers from the community and again, all rides are free.
