For Information on
With the recent cuts of the MTA Able Ride program, Oyster Bay Rotary wanted to make sure our neighbors were receiving rides to make their medical appointments. We have partered with the Doubleday Babcock Senior Center, Harbor House Assisted Living Facility, and Hendrickson Bus Company. Our current services provide rides to neighbors in Bayville, Oyster Bay, East Norwich, and Syosset, traveling to medical appointments and the Syosset dialysis center.
A $5 donation is suggested for a round trip.
Funding for this program is possible through the Oyster Bay Charitable Fund and the Oyster Festival, a project of Oyster Bay Rotary. To support Rotary Rides, please send your tax deductible contribution to: Rotary Rides c/o Oyster Bay Charitable Fund, PO Box 132, Oyster Bay, NY 11771.
