These Retrofitted Buses Will Offer Brooklyn Homeless a Safe Place to Shower

Today, we unveiled a partnership between my administration, @WeAreBCS, and @TPBklyn to establish a first-of-its-kind a mobile shower service that will travel across #Brooklyn to serve our #homeless neighbors and other at-risk populations. This is about basic dignity and respect.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams recently announced a partnership with Turning Point Brooklyn that will place special retrofitted buses on the streets to provide a safe space for homeless to shower and cleanse.

The mobile unit, featuring two shower stalls built into a converted school bus, will cost $385,000 to construct and will be funded with $308,000 from Adams’ capital budget for Fiscal Year 2018 and $77,000 from the City Council […] It will take approximately a year to transform the bus and get it on the road.
