Towers residents now have a new set of wheels to take them round and round.

In a ribbon-cutting ceremony on December 19, co-op officials inaugurated the new North Shore Towers Courtesy Bus and opened its doors to the community.

The Courtesy Bus — which has been around for at least 20 years — mostly accommodates the older residents in the com­plex who don’t drive anymore. One bus can fit 28 passengers, and major location stops include Roosevelt Field Mall, Source Mall and other local shopping areas.

The bus operates Monday through Friday, except on certain holidays, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
