TRANSPORTATION VIA THE NEWARK SENIOR
Over 1000 bus trips were completed last year to transport members to the Center. Without the Senior Center bus many people would be sitting at home, lonely, with no one to talk to. Many older people live with their children who are at work all day. Others can no longer drive and depend on the Center’s bus to get them out of the house. The bus also takes people to shopping on Friday mornings. It is the lifeline for some people to the outside world. If you would like more information on our bus transportation please call us at (302) 737-2336 or email the director at email@example.com.
