Travel Information 

The City of San Gabriel provides trips and tours for adults and children ages 8 and up, accompanied by an adult. Full payment for trips and tours is taken on a first registered, first seated basis at the Recreation Office. Trips are subject to cancellation if required number of participants have not registered by the deadline. All participants must be self-sufficient and capable of walking and climbing stairs without assistance of others. If unable to do so, a wheelchair and/or trip attendant must be provided by participant. Please notify staff at the time of registration if you will be taking a wheelchair to ensure space is accommodated. 

Weekday bus trips depart from and return to the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse parking lot, 320 S. Mission Drive, unless otherwise noted. All cars must be parked on the Broadway Avenue side of the lot only. Bus boarding begins 15 minutes prior to scheduled departure time. Please be prompt to maintain your boarding priority.
