Yakima Transit Offers Free Shuttle to the Fair

Yakima Transit will again provide free shuttle bus service to the Central Washington State Fair throughout its 10-day run. Shuttle buses will run continuously from three locations at Gateway Center (home to Target and other stores).

One is the Park and Ride location across from Gateway Center. The other shuttle stops are between the two south entrances into Gateway Center on North Fair Avenue.  

“This year’s shuttle is being operated the same as previous years,” said Yakima Transit Manager Alvie Maxey. “It has been successful and people have come to rely on it.”

Shuttles will begin operating a half-an-hour before the fair opens each day and stop a half hour after it closes each night.
