  • 1.  Reduced admission for alternative transportation

    Posted 03-13-2019 10:23 AM
    Hello museum friends,

    Does your museum offer or do you know of any museum that offers a reduced admission fee for visitors traveling to the museum by bike, bus, carpool, or on foot? I'd like to connect with institutions that have a working system in place for this type of offering.

    Thanks very much,

    My best to you and Richard. Please tell him I said hello. Glenstone is trialing a program through April whereby we allow visitors who arrive on the local Ride On bus to gain admission to the museum without reservations. We don't charge for the tickets, but they "sell out" within minutes when we release them month by month. The Ride On bus has been a way to satisfy visitor needs while encouraging an environmentally friendly solution. I am happy to discuss this further. (
