DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The Rose Hill Senior Center could receive two new buses if awarded a grant the Dothan City Commission submitted to the Alabama Department of Transportation. The two current buses are 12 years old and have 90,000 miles of usage.
“We want to provide transportation to our center so they can have socialization — recreation and be able to gather and just to have a place to come, ” said Debbie Reed, Rose Hill Senior Center’s Manager.
The two buses in use will be retired if the grant is awarded which would require a 20% match from the city.
“We are looking to get one that we can actually that we could transport some people who may have some handicap issues and we are hoping both of them to bring at least 15 to 20 people per bus,” Reed said.
