Upcoming Bus Excursions

The Department of Recreation Services has implemented a new bus excursion reservation system. Reservations will be made via a lottery instead of by phone. Residents can enter a lottery “card” in person at the Recreation office or via email at recreation@vmsinc.org. Lottery cards may be submitted for up to four excursions at a time (most current four excursions only). One card may hold up to two seats only. Requests received by email will receive a reply receipt via email. Information will be entered into a spreadsheet for randomization. The lottery deadline is approximately two weeks prior to each excursion. Cards will be drawn on each excursion’s lottery deadline and Residents with reservations will be contacted within 48 hours. Those not drawn will be placed on a wait list and will be called in order as cancellations are received. Residents may email or visit the Recreation office to submit lottery cards.
