Wheels on the Bus

A fund to bring Wake County students to area arts and cultural destinations!

The Wheels on the Bus Fund covers transportation and admission costs for one grade level per school annually at Wake County Title I public elementary schools for field trips to area arts and cultural destinations.

Schools must choose their field trip destination from a list of available options. Field trips must take place during the school day.  Schools may submit only one application per school year.
