GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Getting to and from the Senior Center in Gadsden County is about to be a lot easier.
WTXL ABC's Jada Williams was live Friday from the center with details on a gift that's helping the seniors out.
That gift is a new transportation van.
Three other vans the center has are barely operable, and that's why people are so excited about the new one.
Thanks to a donation from Big Bend Transit, the new transportation bus is now a reality.
A board member for the Senior Center says that the previous buses were unreliable, constanly staying in the shop for repairs.
The buses all racking up more than 200 thousand miles.
Now the new bus will be able to safely and confidently transport seniors between the center and their homes.
That new 12 passenger bus will be gifted to the center at 10:30 a.m. Friday.
Board members say they also look forward to taking the seniors on more outings.
