If your organization or school is located around the OKC Metro Area, let EMBARK take care of the transportation on your next field trip to the OKC Zoo. With EMBARK’s Road Scholars program, field trips are exciting and educational from the start. When you ride with EMBARK, you add to your adventure by giving your students a sense of independence. You can also teach them how public transportation helps to keep the environment clean and saves money in parking, gasoline, insurance and car maintenance.

The Road Scholars program is a smart way for educational institutions and organizations to transport school age students, scout troops and student groups to educational destinations like the OKC Zoo! 


The Elephant Express tram schedule is subject to change without notice based on weather and crowd conditions. Please inquire the day of your arrival about the current schedule.


  • The Zoo does not accept credit cards over the phone.

  • Groups MUST enter the Zoo together and pay in ONE register transaction.

  • On the day of your arrival, please pay at one of the Group Sales ticket windows located at the east ticket booth open daily from 9 a.m. to noon.

  • If your attendance numbers are firm and you want to bypass the ticket booths, you may come to the Zoo ahead of time to pay for your reservation. On the day of your reservation, you can go directly to the turnstiles if you have your entire group and payment receipt. Changes in your reservation cannot be made at the turnstiles.
