Summer Youth Transportation

When you plan to attend one of our programs, we are happy to assist you in getting here. We provide several options to accommodate your needs.

All summer programs require you to complete a transportation form in your MyVillage account to indicate how you will be arriving and departing from the program. Transportation forms may also be sent in to the transportation office.  Transportation arrangements vary according to the type of program you are attending and are the responsibility of the participants.
