Transportation

Free transportation is provided from stops in Hartford, West Hartford and Avon.  Please don't drive directly to TMSC for regular attendance, as the cost of transportation is included and provides the best way to get to and from our facility which is on a private road. Questions? Please email summer@tmsc.org  

 

TMSC Staff are at the bus stop each morning to check students in, and remain at the stop in the afternoon until all students are picked up. In the morning, Talcott staff will check-in your student as they board the bus. Please don't just drop off your student and leave. In the evening, you must again see a Talcott staff member face-to-face to check-out your student. Buses leave the stop at the AM departure time, so you should plan on being there before the departure time and before the PM arrival time. If a non-parent relative or aide will be picking up your child, please make sure the staff is told that in the morning so they can add that to the bus list.

 

 KEEP IN MIND:

  • The HARTFORD bus cannot stay and wait for students at this particular location, so please be there before departure time (8:00 AM).
  • For the WEST HARTFORD bus stop, you can park in the lined spaces in the "shopping side" of the lot, please do not park in the driveway or in the spots against the library.
  • The AVON bus stop entrance is at the light. Do not pull into or out of the Avon Board of Education lot. Drive in at the light, turn right & up the hill to where the concession stand is.
