Yakima Transit will provide free shuttle bus service to the Central Washington State Fair throughout its 10-day run. Shuttle buses will run continuously from two locations at Gateway Center (home to Target, Big Lots! and other stores).
One is the Park and Ride location at Gateway Center. The other shuttle stop is between the two south entrances into Gateway Center on North Fair Avenue.
They will load passengers at the Yakima Transit bus stop located north of the former Office Max and take them directly to the front gates of the fair.
“This year’s shuttle is being operated the same as previous years,” said Yakima Transit Manager Alvie Maxey. “Ridership has increased steadily over the past three years. It has been successful and people have come to rely on it.”
Buses will begin operating a half-an-hour before the fair opens each day and stop a half-an-hour after it closes each night. All regular Yakima Transit bus routes and schedules will operate normally throughout the fair with standard fares being charged. The #6 Fair Avenue/North Fourth Street route also serves the fairgrounds at least hourly from the Downtown Transit Center until 6:25 pm.
