Important Info

  • Many areas of Springfield are currently under construction. Due to the ever-changing nature of the road work, we ask that you please follow detour signs whenever applicable.
  • Full-sized buses must drop off and pick up from the short-term bus drop-off spot on Chestnut Street. Look for the bus drop-off sign behind the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts on Chestnut St. Groups will walk through the School Group entrance gate (look for the pink metal arch) next to the bus drop-off sign.
  • Confirm your group’s pick up time in advance. You may want to exchange cell phone numbers to improve communication.
  • Please avoid blocking the entrance/exit to Christ Church Cathedral when dropping-off/picking-up.
  • Buses cannot turn down Edwards Street and cannot park there. If there is no place to drop off or pick up your group on Chestnut Street, please make the loop around Chestnut, Taylor, Dwight and Maple Streets and return to the bus spot.
  • Bus drivers receive free general admission on field trip days. Let staff at the Edwards Street Welcome Center know which school you are driving.
