Travelers Aid Returns to Union Station
In early July, Travelers Aid will again have an information booth in Washington’s Union Station. The staff and volunteers will be operating out of a self-contained pod across from the Greyhound office on the bus deck of Union Station's parking garage. Travelers Aid had to close its information booth in the Amtrak waiting area because of an upcoming renovation program. A mobile volunteer program is being planned so Travelers Aid can continue to assist Amtrak passengers.
New Port Authority Contract Signed
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has offered a two-year contract to Travelers Aid International to continue managing the volunteer programs at New York JFK and Newark airports. Travelers Aid has been serving the JFK passengers since 1957 and the Newark travelers since 1992.
