Brooklyn, NY – Assemblywoman Joan L. Millman announced that the new Red Hook Fairway will offer free shuttle service for seniors on Wednesdays starting on May 17, 2006. The shuttle will pick up passengers at 1:30PM in front of the Eileen Dugan Senior Center at 380 Court Street in Carroll Gardens. Return service will also be provided from Fairway to the Senior Center.
Assemblywoman Millman proposed the Fairway shuttle as a way to provide seniors in Carroll Gardens with easier access to the new supermarket opening in Red Hook, a much needed service for a neighborhood with dwindling grocery shopping options.
“With the free shuttle, the Fairway will be accessible to seniors everywhere in the community, not just people living in the immediate vicinity or those with cars,” said Assemblywoman Millman. “Shuttle service to the new Fairway will be the easiest way for many of Carroll Gardens’ older residents to buy their groceries.”
