Snohomish County, Wash. – Evergreen State Fairgoers can save on parking and gas by taking Community Transit buses to the fair. The bus drops riders off at the West Gate entrance of the fairgrounds in Monroe.
Community Transit service goes to the fairgrounds from Everett on Route 270 (on weekdays) and Route 271 (on weekdays and weekends), and from Gold Bar on Route 271 (on weekdays and weekends).
Riders can use Plan My Trip to plan a bus trip from anywhere in Snohomish County. Or call Customer Care at (425) 353-7433 (RIDE) to plan a trip. Bus schedules are available at communitytransit.org/schedules.
Riding the bus is less expensive than parking at the fair.
Adult fares (ages 19–64) are $2.50, youth 18 and under are free and reduced fares (seniors age 65+/Disabled/Medicare/ORCA LIFT) are $1.25 with a reduced fare pass.
The easiest way to ride is to pay with an ORCA card, which also allows a two-hour transfer window. Learn more about ORCA at communitytransit.org/ORCA.

For Routes 270 and 271, riders can park at Everett Station or at the Gold Bar, Snohomish or Sultan park & ride lots. Riders will need to walk out to Avenue D to catch the bus outside the Snohomish Park & Ride.
