Medical Motor Service gets new bus
Rochester, N.Y. - Medical Motor Services of Rochester has a new 16-passenger ambulatory bus donated from Hurlbut Care Communities.
The donation of the bus adds one more vehicle to the 140 vehicle fleet owned by Medical Motor Service and is one of two buses that have been donated.
The bus transports about 15 people per day, focusing on the Baden Street Senior Center and its nutrition program, and also covers part of the route for the Monroe County Office for the Aging.
"I love driving for the seniors. We go on a lot of outings multiple times a day- Wegmans, Mr. Doug's Deli, the movies, and social gatherings. We have a lot of fun together, and it's so nice to be able to drive everyone on this high-tech, comfortable bus that makes their lives a little bit easier," said Sam Barton, a driver for Medical Motor Service.
The donation of the bus is part of a $100,000 Challenge Grant started by Joel Seligman, President of the University of Rochester, when he was Chairman of the 2013 United Way of Greater Rochester campaign.
The bus was donated in memory of Robert H. Hurlbut, father of Robert W. Hurlbut, current president of Hurlbut Care Communities.
