Mobile Shower and Hygiene Bus for Homeless Adds New SF Location at DMV

Lava Mae, a bus that provides showers and other basic hygiene services for the homeless, will soon expand its route.

Founder Doniece Sandoval launched the San Francisco nonprofit last summer. She currently brings the buses to various San Francisco locations Mondays through Saturdays. The vehicles are old diesel buses from MUNI that were donated.

A rep for the company told Hoodline that Lava Mae will land at the DMV in San Francisco this weekend, where its services will be available from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every Saturday.

The new location will also see the debut of a new shower trailer with three shower heads that will be available for people to take showers.
