EMBARK 'ROAD SCHOLARS' PROGRAM

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!
