Bus Subsidy Program

Playhouse Square is committed to offering the most engaging arts experiences to educators and students, while providing the tools to connect these experiences to education standards in the classroom. We are aware of the increased challenges schools are facing in providing field trip experiences for their students - particularly the financial challenges. Through the generosity of donors and funders, we are pleased to offer bus subsidies to school groups who may be deterred from attending School Matinee Performances at Playhouse Square due to the cost of transportation.

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance for transportation to a School Matinee Performance, be sure to complete the "Bus Subsidy" section of the field trip order form. Approved school groups will receive the actual cost of transportation, up to $175 per bus round trip. Recipients will be chosen based on need and/or date field trip order is received.
