Yakima Transit offering free fair shuttle

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Central Washington State Fair starts Friday, and Yakima Transit will offer free bus rides between the fairgrounds and the Gateway Center.

The free shuttle will allow people to park further away from the fairgrounds and will reduce traffic in the area.

Yakima Transit has offered the fair shuttle rides for more than 20 years. They say 18,000 people used the service last year and they expect that number to hit 20,000 this year.

"We would like to be part of the... All the events that go on in the city, this is a nice introduction to some of the people that don't really ride the bus," says Yakima Transit Manager Ken Mehin.

The buses will run every half hour between the fairgrounds and the Gateway Center on Fair Avenue. They'll start 30 minutes before the gates open and end 30 minutes after the fair closes every day.
