In late March it was announced that the Jewish Pavilion was one of nine winning organizations chosen to have its logo placed on the LYNX public service bus. On Wednesday, April 15, staff and supporters of the Pavilion attended an unveiling of the bus just outside Amway Center, alongside representatives of the other winning nonprofits. Organizations that support the arts, at-risk youth, seniors and mental illness were among the non-profit agencies featured on the LYNX 2015-16 Public Service Bus. Orange County Mayor Theresa Jacobs and LYNX Chief Executive Officer John Lewis presided over the brief ceremony. Mayor Jacobs greeted the crowd, sharing, "I want to thank all of you who provide such important services in the nonprofit arenas to those who are most in need."

Although the organizations that adorned the sides and the back of the bus were chosen by lottery, Nancy Ludin, Jewish Pavilion executive director, shared that being chosen to appear on the public service bus wasn't entirely by chance. Ludin stated, " In addition to luck, there was quite a bit of persistence involved in being chosen. I applied for this opportunity year after year until we were finally picked." Ludin added, "We are so thankful for the opportunity to take the Pavilion's logo on the road, and to gain awareness for Orlando's senior community in elder care."

In addition to having the logo on the bus for one year, the Pavilion can also request its presence at one event over the next year free of charge. Ludin plans on sharing the bus with the community at the Pavilion's "Taste in the Park" fundraiser, which takes place this coming November at the Maitland Civic Center.
