More evening trips added to get workers and fairgoers home from the fair
Snohomish County, Wash. – The Evergreen State Fair is back, and Community Transit has added evening trips to get you home.
The fair runs August 26–31 and Sept. 2–6 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe. Community Transit has direct bus service to the fair from Everett in the west, and Gold Bar in the east. During fair hours
, buses will take you directly to the west fairgrounds entrance, bypassing the hassle of parking.
For more information on taking the bus to the fair, please visit www.communitytransit.org/fair
Extended bus service
The fairgrounds are served by Community Transit Routes 270 and 271. Route 271 operates seven days a week, including holidays, and will offer extra evening trips in both directions during the fair. Buses run every 30 minutes during weekday peak hours and every hour middays, nights and weekends. The last bus will leave the fairgrounds at 11:30 p.m. every night except Labor Day, when the fair closes early.
Route 270 operates Monday through Friday, running every 30 minutes during the morning and evening peak hours, and every hour the rest of the day. Route 270 will operate on regular schedule during the fair.

Taking the bus is easy and safe
Riding the bus is less expensive than parking at the fair. Adult fares (ages 19–64) are $2.50, youth fares (ages 6-18) are $1.75, and reduced fares (seniors age 65+/Disabled/Medicare/ORCA LIFT) are $1.25 with a reduced fare pass.
If you pay by cash, please bring exact change. The easiest way to pay is with an ORCA Card, which also provides a two-hour transfer with your ride. Learn more about ORCA at www.communitytransit.org/ORCA
Community Transit buses are safe, clean, and convenient. Masks are required when riding; if you do not have one when you board the driver will offer you one.

If you ride Routes 270 and 271, you 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.
