DOOR TO DOOR TRANSPORTATION SERVICE VIA THE NEWARK SENIOR CENTER BUS

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 nobody 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 shopping on Friday mornings. It is a lifeline for some to the outside world. If you would like more information on our bus transportation please call us at (302) 737-2336 or email the facilities director.
