Groundwerx clean and safe program

Groundwerx Safety Ambassadors are easy to spot in bright green shirts. They help folks with directions, a walk to the car and report unusual events.

Groundwerx Cleaning Crews help keep downtown clean with sidewalk sweeping, anti-graffiti efforts, pressure washing and more. The special equipment used by Groundwerx is designed to be as quiet and environmentally friendly as possible.

If you see a mess that needs immediate attention, call Groundwerx at 408-287-1520.

Cleaning Crews and Ambassadors work daily from 6 am – 8:30 pm. On Friday and Saturday, safety ambassador hours extend to 10 pm.

Call for a Free Safety Escort 7 Days a Week

During regular program hours, anyone within district boundaries can call 408-287-1520 to request a safety escort. Typical response time is about 5 minutes and the Safety Ambassador can escort you to your car, building, hotel or workplace.

Schedule safety escorts in advance if you know that you will be leaving late.

Safety escorts are available daily from 6 am – 8:30 pm and until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
