New set of wheels for Sunrise Adult Training Centre

Just in time for the holiday season, the Sunrise Adult Training Centre in Grand Cayman has received a new bus that enables it to transport clients with ease and convenience.  

On Friday, 16 December, new centre director Shari Smith was at the Department of Vehicle and Drivers’ Licensing to receive the keys to a custom-made bus for the Sunrise Centre. John Felder of Cayman Automotive was on hand to pass over the keys.  

The Ford F-550 Super Duty bus is fitted to suit the needs of Sunrise’s users. The bus is able to accommodate 10 clients using wheelchairs or seat 22 persons. The bus also features an automated wheelchair lift.  

“Providing the right bus to fit the needs and safety of the Sunrise Centre and their precious clients was my key objective, and this new custom built bus filled those needs perfectly,” Mr. Felder said. “Thank you for giving Cayman Automotive an opportunity to earn your business, and we believe that we have now established a relationship that will last forever.”  

Ms Smith said, “The arrival of this new specially-fitted bus comes at a most opportune time, when the Centre looks toward improved programming and accommodations to meet the growing numbers and needs of the clients at the Sunrise Adult Training Centre. We are thankful to Mr. Felder, everyone at Cayman Automotive, the Ministry of Education, Training & Employment, and DVDL. Of course, the previous director, Ms Roberta Gordon, is commended for her advocacy during the process of acquiring the bus and promoting its design. The clients are excited to begin travelling in the bus, as we at the Centre are pleased to offer quality and efficient transportation as a part of our services.”
