Theater Bus

Our Mission

For over 40 years Theater Bus, Inc. has enriched the lives of older adults over 55 residing in the greater Madison area by providing life enhancing opportunities to socialize with others while participating in safe, escorted outings to theatrical, cultural and social events.


As a non-profit organization, we strive to make these events accessible to all, including those with financial challenges. The reduced isolation and increased well-being can have a tremendous, positive impact on the quality of life for area seniors.
