Busing Information

The National College Fair Committee encourages schools to bus their students to the fair as an opportunity to explore postsecondary options. To ease congestion and facilitate bus parking we ask that all schools planning to bus their students provide their date and time on arrival and departure. 

Registering your buses does not guarantee a drop-off/pick-up time, drop-off location, or a dedicated parking location at the Hartford National College Fair.
