Every year many who attend the fair avoid parking and traffic problems by grabbing a ride to the fair from Yakima Transit. You can do that again this year. A press release from the city says the buses will be providing rides 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).

You can grab a ride at different locations

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.
