There will be late night buses leaving Rockefeller Chapel at 12:00 midnight (don't worry, the bus will wait until 10 minutes past the performance in case it runs a little past midnight). Free buses service all other venues during performance hours between 1:00 PM–10:45PM on Saturday. Route information will be posted on buses and available at venues.
