Busses and Bargains at the Fair

You’re probably way ahead on this – you’ve got your woodworking entry polished, selected the recipe for your to-die-for soufflé and have combed and clipped all of the press coverage of new taste treats.  It’s State Fair time!

Time to get practical now –   The earlybird bus bargain tickets went on sale July 20th – buy before August 25 at $4 –kids four and under still ride free.  Buy a group ticket and get four round-trip rides $15.  Buy online or get information about sales outlets at metrotransit.org/statefair.

Shutter service operates throughout the Fair, August 25-September 5.  Rides are every 15 minutes from some sites, every 30 minutes from others.  You’ll find a full list of park and ride to the Fair sites on the website.

If you just can’t wait – or you want to practice bus riding, know that Metro Transit is offering free rides to three art fairs the first weekend in August, August 5-7.  Pick up and drop off at the Loring Park, Powderhorn and Uptown Art Fairs.  Download a pass at http://metrotransit.org/artpass
