***YOU CAN NOW SIGN UP FOR BUS SERVICE from Madison to Mazomanie and back for all six weeks of summer circus camp! ***
Badger Bus is providing the bus and driver. There will be a designated chaperone/host riding the bus in addition to the driver. The bus will pick up/drop off passengers at Demetral Park, (Commercial and N. 6th St., east Madison), and Clark St. Community School (off Parmenter St. in Middleton).
In order to break even on the cost for this service, we need 12 passengers per week, paying $75 apiece. This covers 9 trips: to and from Mazo; a.m. and p.m. Monday through Thursday, and to Mazo on Friday. We figure you’ll be coming to the end-of-camp performances, so wouldn’t want to use the bus that afternoon. The first week of advanced camp, we would only offer bus service Mon-Turs, since we go to Circus World that Friday, and will arrange carpools instead. So the fee for this week is slightly lower.
If the bus is wildly popular, and we exceed our needed income, then we will lower the cost per rider. We are not trying to make a profit off the bus; just trying to make it easier for your kids (and their friends!) to get to circus camp.
We’ve also created a BUS SUBSIDY FUND for people who are enrolling multiple kids in camp and have limited finances, for example. We realize that if you are transporting multiple kids, then it might save you some money (though not time) if you drive or carpool. However, if we don’t have enough riders to afford the bus, then the whole experiment fails… so we have pulled some $$ from our scholarship fund to give us a bit of flexibility with fees. Please include a note with your registration indicating how much you can afford to pay for the bus service, and select “pay by check” as your payment option. We will email you to follow up.
FYI, the estimated cost of making 9 trips to Mazo and back by car is $90; and this does not include any $$ for your driving time!
