The Van Transportation Program, offering rides to the senior center in Danbury, is expanding. Danbury recently purchased a new service van for the Senior Center’s Van Transportation Program. City officials will hold a brief dedication ceremony at Elmwood Hall Thursday afternoon for the van. Director of Elderly Services Susan Tomanio says the new service bus for Elmwood Hall enables them to provide more rides than in the past, as the capacity to transport has been increased. The current service van holds 8 seats, while the new van has the capacity for 10. Schedules are given out to riders created to optimize use and allow each senior to attend the events of their choosing at the center. The senior center made 5,624 one-way trips with their service van last year.
