Brush Hill Transportation Company dba Brush Hill Tours (www.brushhilltours.com), a family-owned, independent transportation company and the Gray Line licensee for Boston and Cape Cod that specializes in charter and sightseeing transportation for the region, recently provided a Beantown Trolley car to help transport participants involved in Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2016 Woman of the Year Parade. The trolley was third in the parade line-up, just in front of Woman of the Year honoree Kerry Washington. The parade, which took place January 28, has become part of the tradition of honoring the Woman of the Year with a day of celebrations in her honor. The Woman of the Year is selected by society members who have made a “lasting and impressive contribution to the world of entertainment.” “We were excited to be a part of this fun and historical event,” said Richard Anzuoni, Jr., Vice President and General Manager of Brush Hill Transportation Company. “It’s great to be able to support such longstanding institutions and the cultural events they provide to our region – and to tourists coming to our region.” About Brush Hill Transportation Company Brush Hill Transportation Company and Gray Line Boston & Cape Cod (www.brushhilltours.com or www.grayline.com/boston) is a premier charter and transportation service, and greater Boston’s only Gray Line-affiliated touring company.
