To our teachers, thanks for sharing countless stories about the exciting reaction you see from your students when taking a field trip to museums, live theatre matinees, symphonies, aquariums, science centers, and zoos, to name a few.  For many students, it’s their first trip outside their neighborhood.  Most importantly, these trips can be a life-changing experience. 

At ArtsBusXpress (ABX), we recognize how important it is to support our teachers as they expand their curriculum with an out-of-classroom experience of their choice to benefit their students.  The “missing link” to make a field trip a memorable event for students is finding a way to pay for the bus transportation expenses as school districts focus their budgets on other pressing and critical issues like infrastructure, security, and teacher salaries. 

That’s where we and our fabulous community of donors come in! We raise funds to help our teachers pay for bus transportation expenses with a passion for “Enriching Students One Field Trip at a Time.” 

If you are a teacher who desires to help create our future artists, singers, performers, scientists, engineers, doctors, nurses and of course, teachers, click this link to apply for a bus grant today. It’s easy!


For those of you who want to help us “keep the buses rolling,” click here and donate as little as $6 to send a student on a life-changing experience.
