I have been a senior volunteer at our senior center for many years. The center has always been a fun, secure place for our seniors, a place for fellowship, meals, a source of information, and, very important to most seniors, a place for a reliable ride.
Most seniors do not drive anymore. A ride to the store biweekly, to medical appointments, religious functions, back and forth to the senior center, and many other occasions are just a few of the reasons we have a senior bus with a driver.
We still have a bus, actually two buses, but no driver – for two weeks, at least! Where is Plan B when the driver has to take time off? Even planned vacations are not covered. No Plan B – no rides, no appointments, no store.
Two years ago, the people of Hull voted to hire another bus driver.
This needs to be looked into.
