Currently the only cab service at Rockville Centre, All Island Transportation said at the elders' assembly on 9 October that it would offer free transport to the village's senior citizens every Thursday starting this weekend. Notice was given soon after a request was received from City Car Service Inc. of Lynbrook for a licence to run the Rockville Centre.
Lawrence Blessinger Jr. said All Island VP Mayor Francis Murray and the executive committee were discussing whether the service should be offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays, and Cyd Charrow, head of the village's seniors' service, said Thursday was elected because it is one of the busiest dates. According to Blessinger, the range of taxis offered was influenced by the economic situation.
It will be "point to point in the village", Blessinger said, and will run between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. According to Murray, villagers are considering applying for the service, although they have not heard many appeals from those who think there should be more taxi operators. According to Murray, All Island has been upgrading and adding new cabins in recent years.
