FREE BUS SERVICE TO TAKE SENIORS TO LIBRARY FROM E HARTSDALE AVE AND HIGHPOINT
Release Date: January 30, 2008
Last night, members of the Greenburgh Town Board ( Kevin Morgan, Sonja Brown, Francis Sheehan, Diana Juettner & I ) met with residents of E Hartsdale Ave to discuss our efforts to try to encourage the Library Board to restore the cybermobile and Sunday library hours. A suggestion was made at the meeting that the town offer bus service to the library from E Hartsdale Ave and Highpoint (two locations with many senior citizens – some who don’t have cars).
As a result of the meeting – the town will begin offering free bus service to take seniors to the library/town hall from East Hartsdale Ave and Highpoint BEGINNING Wednesday, February 6th. The bus will leave E Hartsdale Ave at 10 AM and a few minutes later from Highpoint. The bus will return from the library around noon and at 3 PM. The town will use an existing bus and driver for this service so no additional taxpayer dollars (other than gas) will be spent.
Those wishing to take advantage of the service are requested to call 693-8997 by Tuesday to make a reservation. They can also e mail firstname.lastname@example.org If we find that seniors/residents would like the bus service expanded to more than one day a week – we will accommodate their request and expand this program.
Efforts will continue to take place to encourage the Greenburgh Library Board to restore the cybermobile and Sunday library hours.
