Seniors Outreach orders new Community Bus

Seniros Bus 2022

It’s a go!

The Seniors Outreach New Community Bus was ordered on April 8, and the made-to-order vehicle is to be delivered in the fall.

It is a 2022 Turtle Top Odyssey 22 RL (Rear Luggage) Passenger Bus, V3.

The cost of just over $118,000, has been fully met through the very generous Community donations (approximately 30%), Monies raised through Casino funds, (approximately 30 %), and the receiving of the Alberta Government Community Initiatives Program (CIP) project based Grant, (approximately 40%).

The “old bus” is a 2007 model with about 200,000 kms on it to date. Seniors Outreach will still need to use this bus until the new bus is delivered.

The Community Bus is used for local transportation in Three Hills twice a week but also for special bus trips out of town which has included excursions to Heritage Park, the Stampede, Concerts, and general outings. It is also available for “Safe Drives” for events such as reunions and weddings etc.

Terry Schlinker, Administrator of Seniors Outreach, on behalf of all Outreach staff, and Board members, and those who use the multiple services, expresses great thanks to all donors who have made this purchase a reality.
