ARPD offer daily transportation to registered participants from their respective schools to the Underground Teen Center.  ARPD Staff makes every effort to arrive at dismissal time and will wait at the pick-up location for 10 minutes.  We have limited drivers and vehicles so if a Staff Member is not at the pick-up point immediately at dismissal time, please be patient as we have multiple locations with similar dismissal times to pick participants up from.

ARPD Drivers are limited to 9 passengers in a vehicle so if your participant does not make it into the van on the first pick-up, there will be another vehicle returning shortly to collect them.  See above for more information on cost per trip.

The Club Underground Program is located in The Underground Teen Center in the Veteran's Memorial Building,2203 Central Ave, Room 170, Alameda, (510) 748-9466 


The Underground Teen Center closes at 5:30 pm each day so all participants must either sign self out or be picked up by 5:30 pm.

Starting at 5:31 p.m., a late fee of $1 per minute will be charged for late pick-ups, payable that day.

If you are more than 30 minutes late, we will contact the Alameda Police Department to pick up your tween/teen and take him/her to the Alameda Police Department. If late pick ups are a consistent problem, we will take further appropriate action.
