CSF Bus Survey

Thanks to all who voted in the bus survey. Nineteen people voted for a charter bus - approximately one-third of registered participants. We've analyzed the survey results and weighed them with our public transportation options.

*Update 4/13/09* We've reserved a 52-passenger ADA charter bus for Saturday. The bus will board at Club Quarters Hotel at 9:30 a.m. with stops at each of our destinations, then back to Club Quarters at about 5:00 p.m. For those not attending the Bayless garden tour, we'll arrange for the bus to circle back and pick you up at Club Quarters at 10:30 a.m.

Seats on the bus are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. We've reserved the largest bus available, and with the number of participants registered for Spring Fling it's possible we could reach or exceed capacity.

The cost per person is $26.00. In order to expedite this process you may reserve your seat by paying for it via PayPal here, with no additional registration forms to complete. Payments are being accepted today through April 30th.

If the bus is filled to capacity, the cost could drop to as low as $20.00 per person. If that occurs we'll refund overpayments in cash at Spring Fling. Because we can't predict how many people will reserve a seat, we felt this would be the most efficient way to manage reserving and pricing seats. We hope you'll join us on the bus Saturday.

Friday's and Sunday's events will include public transportation. Please visit each day's events pages for details. On Sunday, anyone preferring not to use the El's (elevated train) Green line (leaving every ten minutes from Adams & Wabash) to the Conservatory stop on Sunday, may consider a cab. A six-mile trip is a reasonably-priced cab fare, and even more economical if cabs are shared.
