Who We Are
Essential Plus Transportation was a vision and dream of the late Tolu Ogunmakin, who founded this company in 2009. Tolu always shared wisdom with which he was taught and believed that this company should be a family, where everyone can depend on one another for support and strength. With that precedent, this company has followed that premise and aspires to be more than just a company but also a home and family.
We currently work together with Alta California Regional Center in transporting consumers to their work, school and daycare programs. We are also open for business in the San Joaquin area for medical or non-medical transportation.
