BUS TRIP ADVICE

Arrive 15 minutes prior to departure. The bus will not wait for any late-comers.
• Return times are approximate.
• Dress appropriately for the weather and trip.
• When you register, inform the front desk if you need to bring a wheelchair or a walker. We require a minimum two week notification to arrange wheelchair transportation.
• The walker/wheelchair must be very compact and portable. If an attendant is required, this person must register as a participant and pay full fare as bus trip volunteers cannot assist with lifting or pushing wheelchairs.
• Trips are non-transferable. If you are unable to make the trip, please notify the front desk to confirm alternative arrangements.
• Please take note of Glen Pine Extended Parking requirements.
• For trips to the USA:
» Bring your valid travel documentation (passport, enhanced drivers license).
» It is your responsibility to buy extra medical insurance.
» Be aware that laws prohibit some merchandise from being brought back across the border.

NOTE: Bus trip pick up spots are at Dogwood and Glen Pine (Spirit Square on Burlington Drive across from City Hall, meet in the Hub when Glen Pine is open). These are the only designated stops or pick ups. Prices include school bus transportation unless otherwise stated.
REFUND POLICY: Full refund shall be issued if the request is made five days in advance of the bus trip.
No refund under five days. If a bus trip is full, place your name on the wait list. There is a strong possibility that another bus can be booked or another day planned.
