Yakima Transit is offering FREE shuttle bus service to this year's community Independence Day celebration at the fairgrounds on July 4.

The bus service is setting up three Park & Ride locations in Yakima to get you to State Fair Park with little hassle.

* Gateway Center on Fair Avenue in front of Office Max.
* Eisenhower High School off 40th Avenue and Tieton Drive.
* Wide Hollow Elementary off 72nd Avenue and Nob Hill Boulevard.

Buses will run continuously from all three pick-up/drop-off locations from 3:30- 9:30 p.m. and again from 10:30-11:30 p.m. (following the fireworks display at the fairgrounds).

Extra buses will be on duty following the fireworks to get spectators back to the Park & Ride locations as quickly as possible.
