New York University today announced the schedule for its annual summer program to provide free bus service for senior citizens at several Manhattan senior residences. The program, now in its 16th summer, enables these New Yorkers to make day-long recreational trips around the area in air-conditioned buses. The program will serve some 350 seniors.

The program, which is managed by NYU’s Office of Government and Community Relations, has arranged the following trips:

  • United Jewish Council - Coney Island
  • Sirovitch Senior Center - Brooklyn Botanical Garden
  • The Caring Community at Our Lady of Pompeii Church - Brooklyn Botanical Garden
  • The Helen Harris Center - The Bronx Zoo
  • The Caring Community, 20 Washington Square North - City Island
  • The Caring Community, First Presbyterian Church - Brighton Beach
  • The Jacob Riis Senior Club - Coney Island Aquarium
  • Co-op Village Senior Care - Coney Island Aquarium

Michael Haberman, NYU’s director of Government and Community Relations, said, “In any season, New York City is spectacular and rich in cultural and recreational treasures. The University is pleased to continue this longstanding tradition and enable some of our senior citizens enjoy the city during the summer.”
