Area transportation officials will be on hand at the Pleasanton Senior Center to provide information about programs and discounts specifically geared toward senior drivers next week as part of the city's annual transit fair.
The event, which turns the Senior Center into a transit center for a day, will feature staff from the Pleasanton Police Department, paratransit services, Altamont Corridor Express (ACE) Train, Alameda County Transportation Commission, California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), California Highway Patrol, BART, Livermore Amador Valley Transit Agency, Community Resources for Independent Living and the Senior Support Program of the Tri-Valley.
The free information fair is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 17 in the main lobby of the Senior Center at 5353 Sunol Blvd. A keynote presentation by the DMV on the Senior Driver Ombudsman Program is set for 11 a.m.
Since the transit fair is occurring on St. Patrick's Day, attendees can take part in a traditional Irish lunch, of corned beef and cabbage, in the center's Sage Cafe. The luncheon costs $3 and reservations are required.
For more information, call 931-5365 or stop by the Senior Center.
