If you are an Amador County resident in cancer treatment, then you are eligible to use STARS' free van
for transportation to and from your radiation and chemotherapy appointments. Our vans generally depart from and return to
the STARS office on Sutter Hill, but pickup/dropoff in Ione and Plymouth can be arranged. We transport patients to the Sacramento Valley, San Joaquin Valley, El Dorado County, Calaveras County and within Amador County. Other trips may be arranged with advance notice.
The vans run 5 days a week and are owned, maintained, insured and scheduled by the Amador STARS. Please read our frequently asked questions below, and do not
hesitate to contact STARS at (209) 267-1246 if you have further questions.
Without our volunteer drivers, STARS could not offer our free transportation program. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer driver, please
read our guidelines below. Most drivers begin as a substitute driver. Drivers must be age 21-75 years upon applying to drive.
Before you start to drive the vans, you will need to complete the STARS paperwork and will have an orientation meeting. We will also schedule you to go on
Sacramento and Lodi/Stockton orientation ride with one of the regular cancer van drivers.
Thank you for considering volunteering. We would not be able to offer these important services to our community without our wonderful volunteers.
