Transportation Scholarships

Through the generous support of Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority and The Convenience Stores Of Speedway, Dayton Live is proud to offer Fueling Education to help get you and your students to the theatre for our engaging programs.

For schools located on or within a quarter-mile of an RTA route:
You must submit an application, which can be filled out below. RTA will notify you if they are available to pick up your students, take them to the show, and return them following the performance free of charge.

This service is offered on a limited basis and is dependent upon the daily availability of buses and operators. Teachers may request one fueling education voucher per season. All requests require RTA and your school district’s approval, so plan early!

When you click “submit,” a copy will automatically be sent to Dayton Live and the RTA. You will receive a confirmation from the RTA no later than two weeks before your scheduled performance.

If your school is located outside of the RTA route:
There may be additional scholarship resources available to provide transportation to and from your performance. Please email for more information.

Fueling Education Application

Remember! You must complete your Discovery Series registration before you request fueling education assistance.
