New Bus Seniors Tour Company Starting Up in the Fall

BY GEORGE J. DACRE

The Upper Class company of Westchester, which provides premier bus trips designed exclusively for senior citizens and baby boomers is introducing senior tour trips in Rockland County.

The new Rockland service will launch this fall with three trips departing from Kohl’s Shopping Center on Route 59 in Nanuet. Rockland seniors can “Get Away For A Day” or longer on trips that feature a dedicated tour director, luxury motor coaches with onboard restroom, medical cancellation insurance for peace of mind and value pricing with all taxes and gratuities included.

There will be a variety of trips including day cruises, Broadway shows, museum visits, special fall foliage outings, holiday excursions, overnights and longer tours, says Brooke Lawer, spokesperson for the family-operated Upper Class that was started by Brooke’s grandmother, Florence. Her son, Paul Lawer, is the company’s current president.

Paul, in a news release to the Rockland County Times, said they are excited about operating in Rockland County. Prior, the firm had been operating exclusively out of Mamaroneck in Westchester County for more than 10 years.

“We are committed to serving the Rockland community by providing trips that are entertaining and educational, while helping to give our guests every opportunity to be engaged active members of society,” Lawer said.

The Upper Class this year will offer close to 200 unique trips, overnight and longer tours. The company has taken more than 1,000 trips and more than 40,000 friends and neighbors have gone on Upper Class tours since 2002. More information at upperclass.net or 914-725-5640.
