Utica, NY (WIBX) - The Parkway Senior Center in Utica has a brand new bus for its Transportation Program.

The vehicle was acquired through a grant from the State Department of Transportation.

Part of the funding to support the grant was made possible by the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties and the Faxton Street Home Fund.

The bus will pick up members at their homes, bring them to the center for programs and return them to their homes after.

The transportation program is run by volunteers.
