Bus Vouchers

School groups, afterschool programs, and community organizations can apply here for bus vouchers of up to $300 each to arrange their own transportation for 30 or more people to the Exploration Expo, Atlanta's biggest interactive family science day, on Saturday March 25, 2017 at Centennial Olympic Park. Don't miss this gigantic science party that attracted 19,000 people last year. A limited number of vouchers are available and will be distributed to groups in order to broaden access to the Expo event. Preference will be given to groups serving economically disadvantaged youth or those outside the downtown Atlanta area. Limit one per school/organization. Reimbursements will be made to organizations with a valid tax ID number; no individuals will be reimbursed.

3. You will receive instructions about arrival/departure and bus parking approximately 2 weeks prior to date of travel. Please ensure that your bus company and driver receive these instructions.
